I'm a volunteer with a community theater, and they want me to help them out with applying for grants, marketing, etc. I've signed up for an online grant-writing course through my local community college, but haven't paid for it yet (have to go pay in person this week).
Is $95 too much to pay for learning how to write a grant? If so, what books/sites would r/nonprofit recommend (especially for arts-related grants)?
Here's the syllabus for the course: http://www.ed2go.com/schoolcraft/online_course/gw1/syllabus/A_to_Z_Grantwriting%3a_Relationship_Focused.html
Edit/Update: Consensus here is that if you can write well and follow directions, you don't need the course. I'm following your advice.
