    Do any of you have a job description for Community Benefit Coordinator/Director/whatever you may call it. We are working on updating and I am curious as to what it included in some others. I am also still looking for someone with some experience with a Foundation Dept. – would love to visit with someone and get more clarification on reporting for this.
