The Dramatists Guild Foundation Board of Directors is proud to announce it has just elected Kevin Hager to be its new Vice President. Mr. Hager succeeds former Vice President, award-winning composer, lyricist, and playwright Carol Hall (Best Little Whorehouse in Texas). “First, Kevin Hager said ‘Yes!’ to DGF and now he’s saying ‘Yes!’ to accepting the duties of Vice President of the Board.  I can think of no greater member of our organization to work with, side by side, as DGF heads into its most exciting phase yet.” – Andrew Lippa, President

Serving on the Board of Directors since 2010, Mr. Hager serves as the Chair of the Board Development and Succession Committee.“We are so fortunate to have Kevin join our Board’s leadership cabinet. He brings years of experience in strategy and results in nonprofit management and a deep passion for the theater. We know he will help take DGF to the next level in achieving our ambitious goals.” – Rachel Routh, Executive Director

Kevin Hager is currently the Managing Director of Understood.org and Vice President and Chief Digital Officer of the National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD). In these roles he oversees all fundraising, communications, and online strategy and engagement. He led successful efforts to significantly increase total fundraising for the organization while simultaneously diversifying funding streams and increasing unrestricted revenue. Working with several of the top website, social media, PR, and strategic planning experts in the country, he led the process of creating a comprehensive, forward-thinking plan to scale the organization’s brand and more effectively engage key audiences. This resulted in the creation of a new, fully-funded, online strategy and engagement department overseen by Mr. Hager.

Prior to his work at NCLD, he managed the creation of the Center for Service Learning at the University of Kansas. Mr. Hager then moved into political campaigns, serving as the press secretary for a DCCC “Top 10 Race” and ultimately as campaign manager for a large municipal campaign before moving to New York to serve as the development director of DoSomething.org.
