Nadia Cavner studied business administration at Texas Christian University (TCU). Between 1991 and 2014 she led Nadia Cavner Group Investment Services in Springfield, Missouri, as president and chief financial consultant. She now focuses her efforts on community organizations and local charities, including Care to Learn.
In 2016, Ms. Cavner made a significant contribution to Care to Learn, an educational group dedicated to the most in-need children of the Ozarks region. A longtime supporter of the organization, her $100,000 donation was made primarily with the intention of helping Care to Learn expand its services to more schools throughout Missouri. Care to Learn’s founder, Doug Pitt, praised the contribution and explained how Ms. Cavner’s sponsorship has been integral to the development of new programs dating back to her support of chapters in Bradleyville and Hartville.
Over the course of the last decade, Care to Learn has established more than 30 chapters throughout Missouri. Despite the organization’s success, Mr. Pitt, donors like Ms. Cavner, and the rest of the Care to Learn staff agree that the organization’s primary goal moving forward is to provide services to a greater number of children.
