As a member of the Development team at The ASCO Cancer Foundation, Elizabeth Hagen raises funds for the Foundation’s grants and educational programs to ensure continued progress in cancer research, prevention, and patient care both in the United States and abroad. Elizabeth focuses on donor outreach and has a strong interest in cause marketing.
Before joining The ASCO Cancer Foundation, she fueled her passion for engaging people in worthy causes while working with progressive organizations and candidates as an Account Executive at the political consulting firm, Stones’ Phones. While there, Elizabeth developed campaign strategies that helped her clients to raise the money, find the supporters, and earn the votes they needed to succeed.
Prior to that Elizabeth was a part of the Development and Events team at EMILY’s List, a political action committee that supports and fundraises for Democratic pro-choice women candidates. She gained valuable experience in a political environment and, among her numerous responsibilities, was the planning and orchestration of EMILY’s List’s largest annual event and fundraiser.
Elizabeth earned a B.A. for Interdisciplinary Study in the fields of Communications, Legal Institutions, Economics, and Government at American University, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude. She is a proud New Hampshire native and an avid runner. When she’s not in the office it’s likely you’ll find her outside training for her next big road race.
