Megan Forgrave

Communications Program Manager

Megan joined the Bush Foundation in 2015. As a member of the communications team, she creates and produces unique events to inspire, equip and connect leaders across our region.

Megan honed her skills in writing and eagle-eye editing as a reporter at The Des Moines Register. She then moved into the nonprofit sector, serving as the Director of Communications for the Iowa Association of School Boards, where her projects ranged from editing policy papers to managing public relations. Most recently, she was the Director of Communications for The World Food Prize Foundation, where she worked on an international level to highlight global food security issues; coordinate events featuring a wide range of participants including world leaders, scientific experts, farmers and youth; and produce educational exhibits to inspire the next generation of hunger fighters.

Now that she's returned home to the Twin Cities, she is excited to meet people here who are doing good in the world, and is passionate about finding ways to connect them. Megan, her journalist husband, their toddler son and newborn, spend their time experimenting in the kitchen, reading, and exploring all that Minnesota has to offer, especially the beloved lakes (and frozen tundra).
