Vice President and Chief Operating Officer

Gail Crider, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, directs our program design area and facilitates our internal operations.  In addition, she consults on strategic leadership, planning and governance. Gail was instrumental in our transition from the National Arts Stabilization Fund to National Arts Strategies and providing the range of services we offer today, including our most recent addition, The Chief Executive Program.

Before joining National Arts Strategies, Gail worked with a variety of arts organizations and spent ten years in the funding community. In her most recent position as a program officer for a private foundation, Gail worked on inner-city redevelopment and community building in Washington, D.C. Gail has also worked for the Arizona Commission on the Arts, Arena Stage, Shakespeare Theatre at the Folger and the National Endowment for the Arts. She co-chaired the Community Development Support Collaborative in Washington, D.C., and has served on the audit committee for the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies and on grant panels for the Corporation for National Service (AmeriCorps), the National Endowment for the Arts and the Department of Treasury, CDFI Fund. She holds a B.S. in theater from Lewis and Clark College.  She was recently named a Senior Fellow of the Center for High Impact Philanthropy at the University of Pennsylvania, where she is working on a report for donors on how to best assess the financial and management systems within arts organizations.

Gail dreams of traveling the world to meet and fund artists and organizations doing great work.  She enjoys playing the role of mother to an exceptional teenage son, practicing yoga, volunteering at community events and cooking.
