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. Specifically, she produces bushCONNECT, manages our bushCON On The Road event scholarships, and oversees our Event Sponsorship Program, among other communications work.

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. Most recently, she was the Director of Communications for The World Food Prize Foundation, where she led strategic communications and public relations on an international level to highlight global food security issues; coordinated events featuring a wide range of participants including political leaders, scientific experts, farmers and youth; and produced 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, and their two boys spend their time experimenting in the kitchen, reading, having living room dance parties, and exploring all that Minnesota has to offer, especially the beloved lakes (and frozen tundra).
