5 star My husband and I were EXTREMELY thrilled about our wedding video by Evan Lanier! This is probably one of the most precious and priceless pieces we have taken away from the wedding and all thanks goes to Evan! Each time we watch it, the video reminds us of all the memories. Evan did an amazing job at capturing our WHOLE day! He made us feel at ease in all the wedding-day-jitters and his personality is so fun to be around– you instantly feel like you have known him for years. If I were to give advice to any future bride and grooms, I would say if at all possible, INVEST IN A WEDDING VIDEO BY EVAN! You will definitely not regret it! Evan is so incredibly talented and very professional about his work. He captured our day perfectly and compiled it into a stunning, edited video, including music and great audio of the time prior to the wedding when we were getting ready, the ceremony and the reception. It was a pleasure to have Evan be a part of our special day. He listened to all our video requests and also captured everything we didn’t think of. We knew everything was taken care of and he was so fun to have around. We were so happy to have each special moment captured on video. Evan had really great turn-around time and the quality of work is unbelievable. I recommend Evan and his products. It truly is something we will have forever and will watch for years to come. Thank you Evan, for making our special day a beautifully captured day to remember forever.

I have hired Cynthia Steiner to provide copywriting and editing services on a number of marketing and publishing projects. I do this because Cynthia is a talented, versatile writer, she’s an excellent listener, and she finishes projects on time and within budget. Recently I asked her to write a capabilities web article for a financial services client. Cynthia interviewed two sources and turned around a polished, persuasive 1,600-word story in three days. The article was quickly approved and posted. That level of professionalism keeps me coming back to Cynthia Steiner for my writing needs. I highly recommend her.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you hire a good grant writer?

Grants are available to nonprofit organizations, for-profit businesses that qualify for government grants, and individuals who qualify for foundation or government grants. Hiring a good grant writer can help you gain funding in your chosen field. According to the American Grant Writers’ Association, grant writers can help you research potential grant opportunities; write grant proposals, create budgets, and build budget narratives; review written materials before you submit; prepare a business plan; analyze your organization for grant competitive qualities; prepare research grants; help with 501(c)(3) applications for nonprofits; and more. Investing in the right grant writer could result in a financial win for your organization. Generally no licenses or certificates are required to be a good grant writer, but you may want to find a grant writer who has been certified (not just received a certificate of completion) by a reputable organization such as the Grant Professionals Certification Institute. Qualities to look for in a good grant writer include:

  • Proven success writing winning grants, especially in your target area.
  • Strong writing skills.
  • Strong math skills and demonstrated proficiency with budgeting.
  • Careful attention to detail — brilliant grant proposals may be rejected just for formatting errors, so you want someone who follows instructions explicitly.
  • Expertise in your target area.
  • Punctuality and good communication skills.

How much does a grant writer cost?

Hiring a grant writer can give you a competitive edge when applying for financial grants for your business or nonprofit organization, or as an individual. The cost to hire a grant writer can vary depending on their academic background, areas of expertise, previous grant writing success and years of experience. According to the Grant Professionals Association, grant writers should be paid hourly or by flat fee. It is unethical for a grant writer to accept a commission or percentage compensation of grant monies received. They can, however, be awarded bonuses in line with the hiring company’s prevailing practices. Here are some examples of average grant writing fees:

  • Hourly rate for grant writers with less experience or fewer grants awarded: $25-$35 per hour.
  • Hourly rate for grant writers with some degree of success: $35-$75 per hour.
  • Hourly rate for grant writers with proven success winning large grants: $75-$150 or more per hour.
  • For a smaller grant, the writer may charge a flat fee of $200-$500 for preparation and submission.  

Pricing may also vary based on the complexity of the grant application. A federal grant that requires pages of research, budgets and a business plan may take more than 30 hours to prepare. For a high-level grant writer who charges $100 per hour, this means $3,000 or more in grant writing fees.

Most grant writers will provide you with a total cost estimate before agreeing to the work. You may be required to pay a deposit up front, or the grant writer may work from a retainer. Often, seasoned grant writers pay for themselves in the long run by writing successful grants.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
