Kimberly Breeden built a career on working for some of the best non-profit brands in the business. In 1990, she embarked on a career with Boys and Girls Clubs and went on to become an Executive Director for The Boys and Girls Clubs of Greensboro, NC, where she continued to promote leadership and mentoring. During her years with Boys and Girls Clubs she received numerous awards for programs designed for children ages 6-18 and for staff leadership development.

Breeden continued to fulfill her passion working with at-risk children through her role as Executive Director for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Durham and Orange Counties. The Agency was serving 38 children when she started. In 2005, two Big Brothers Big Sister organizations merged to form Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Triangle and named Breeden as the CEO. Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Triangle won numerous awards under Breeden’s leadership and in 2008, Breeden was named CEO of the Year for Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. At the time of her departure in 2017, the organization was serving over 12,000 children annually.

In 2017, Breeden accepted a role working for the Anonymous Trust and has the honor of building relationships with nonprofits, Universities, and Health Systems in Eastern, NC. She loves serving as a mentor, coach, and advocate for nonprofits. In 2018, she formed the Anonymous Trust’s Women’s Reentry Task Force to build a model to support women reentering society after prison. After over a year of research and site visits with a variety of stakeholders, the new Women’s Reentry Business Model was developed. In June 2020, Interfaith Prison Ministry for Women was chosen to implement the model and it officially kicked off in July 2020. Breeden hopes that this program will be life changing for women reentering society after prison.

In Breeden’s free time she loves bowling, gardening, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
