Victoria Tejeda (née Bogdan)
I’m interested in environmental conservation and advocacy, defense of public trust resources, and the creative use of technologies with environmental issues and science.
Starting in fall 2014, I’ll be a JD candidate at University of California, Davis. My concentration will be environmental law.
- Grant Writing & Fundraising Consulting: As an experienced grant writer and foundation fundraising consultant, I greatly enjoy working with nonprofits to help them translate their visions and stories into effective grant proposals and fundraising strategies. Since 2010 I have worked with organizations to conduct prospect research “audits”, plan events, write grant reports and proposals, and develop effective cultivation-solicitation-stewardship approaches to institutional giving donors. Please see my clients list.
- Co-founder, Nerds for Nature. We’re a Bay Area-based group of environmentalists, technologists, designers, and advocates who think that by bringing together those both on the “nerds” and the “nature” sides, a lot of new, creative ways will emerge to help us better protect, understand, and defend the natural world. @nerds4nature on Twitter
- Co-facilitator, Environmental Forum of Marin‘s Master Class 40. The Master Class teaches students the science, policy, and strategies for effective advocacy needed to act on behalf of environmental issues and influence decision making.
- Creator, “Bay Area: What Could Have Been.” Inspired by the Forum’s founder Dr. Marty Griffin’s successful action to stave off the “Lost Angeles-ization of the Bay Area”, I will be creating a graphic novel / online exhibit to tell the story of what could have been for the Bay Area.
