Maia McGill

Consulting Partner, Inclusive Philanthropy

Maia is a seasoned industry leader with more than 18 years of experience in the higher education and philanthropic sectors. She is considered a notable authority in inclusive philanthropy and co-founded the former Office of Inclusive Philanthropy at the Florida International University (FIU) Foundation in 2021, which was the first of its kind in the nation.

The FIU Foundation Office of Inclusive Philanthropy (FOIP) brought together development professionals with community and industry partners from diverse backgrounds to inform, implement, and evaluate philanthropic strategy and programming that promoted systemic change. FOIP’s target initiatives included scholarships and wrap-around support services for students, increased faculty diversity, strong and inclusive advisory board governance, social equity research, cultural competence trainings, and improved health and education outcomes.

Within FOIP, Maia cultivated a fundraising team composed of individuals with diverse cultural, racial and religious backgrounds, gender identities and sexual orientations – representation that was integral to the Office’s work and to understanding the needs of the university’s diverse student body. By June 2023, more than $50 million was raised to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives university-wide.
