Workshop on “Data Collection for Designing Knockout Programs and Winning Grants,” June 26


OCCUR and The San Francisco Foundation Faiths Program are presenting a workshop on Friday, June 26, “Data Collection for Designing Knockout Programs and Winning Grants.”


“All grant seekers want big money and believe their programs deserve to win those large monetary awards,” says Carmen Bogan, Program Director of A Model Built on Faith and Community technical assistance program. “But substantial, multi-year grants are based on programs built on accurate data, not guesswork,” she said.


The workshop will be intensive, interactive and designed to prepare participants to use powerful government databases to build their best case for large grants.


Instructors Lia Bolden, Data Dissemination Specialist with the US Census Bureau, and Carmen Bogan, CEO of the Bogan Group, will teach participants how to mine census and other elusive data to uncover true community needs and emerge with facts that make a case to receive winning grants.


Course instructors highly recommend that each participant or organization bring a laptop to this interactive workshop on Friday, June 26 at the First Unitarian Church, located at 684 14th St. in Oakland.


Check in is 8:30-9 a.m., workshop begins at 9 a.m. For more information or to RSVP, contact [email protected], (510) 839-2440 or visit online
