bay area is the william and flora hulett foundation or the david and lucille pack hard foundation. also check out the chronicle of philanthropy. the site has a jobs page and a new to the nonprofit world section which is filled with news and expert advice for people who don't have a nonprofit background. one last tip. nonprofits are increasingly looking for employees who have business backgrounds to help them maximize profits, cut losses and remain sustainable. i'm jill schlesinger for kpix 5. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
