Bridget McKay, Major Gift Officer (Western Region)

Bridget McKay joined the MAPS team in April 2022 as the first MGO dedicated to our philanthropic partners in the western United States. She is a 16+ year advocate for passionate collaboration and relationship building that benefits our community and society in both immediate and visionary ways.  Bridget specializes in major and annual gifts, while bringing knowledge of special events, planned giving, stewardship, development systems, and more. Spending much of her career in higher education, she also worked in the arts sector and most recently served at a community hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic. Bridget is inspired by the futurist outlook of MAPS and is thrilled to be championing our audacious goal of changing the mental health landscape globally.
