      This is a good idea but why not do something better. 

      Why not post items that will provide low cost (possibly Free) training and development for RCD Board members and volunteers.  They could receive low cost training from a local Nonprofit Centers or State Nonprofit Associations, webinars, seminars, video presentations etc on line also.  We are luck in Texas to have most of this in San Antonio which is within our area. I am a NPO consultant by trade for the past 18 years and I am a volunteer here because I love the mission of Alamo RCD.  It is very important that they just not hire anyone but some one who has a feel for the RCD mission and who can help them with local sources first to get their "feet wet" and who can develop local donors for them also. Donors are 80% of your funding while grants are supposed to be only 20%. Hiring only a grant writer will not do for the long term. In order to become sustainable you need the input from many many donors and you need to nurture and increase your donor involvement over time. 

      yours,
