I’m still trying to figure out what fits into these two activities…. For instance, I have a nurse that participates in the following monthly meetings:
Arizona School Based Health Care Council – Board of Directors Yavapai Communities for Kids Citizen’s Review Panel (Reviews State Child Protective Services System)
Are these Coalition Building or Advocacy activities????November 9, 2010 at 7:44 pm #6932

I would ask the nurse to provide you with the mission statement of these two organizations so that you’d have a better ideal on where to place her time and expenses. Make sure she is the “official” representative for the hospital and then ask her to let you review some of the agendas and/or meeting minutes so that you can ascertain where these should be placed in CBISA.
Since one is directly related to health care, I’d be more likely to place it in Donation: In-Kind: Board Membership (assuming the agenda/minutes accurately reflect that title). Depending what role she plays on the second group, I’d most likely count that under Community-Building: Coalition. Hope that helps!November 9, 2010 at 7:45 pm #6933

If the nurse is representing the hospital on these committees and not volunteering his/her time, I would think the first could be documented under in-kind donations as it seems to be health related. The second, I would count under community building.
