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.

Meagan did an amazing job and had very insightful comments. She is clearly knowledgeable and I would not hesitate to recommend her to all my colleagues. I will certainly be asking her to help with future things!

About

We write different reports, essays, resumes, pretty much whatever the customer may have need of. We also editing. We have some tutoring going on at this time, as I love to teach. We are also a Church School just getting started. I believe we as parents absolutely are responsible for what our children learn. There are positive aspects and negative aspects to each new situation--it becomes a new learning experience. Now, do you know what they are learning? Are you sure that they are learning the positivie things? Sometimes, a simple misunderstanding could cause a child to not fully grasp the meaning or the right meaning. Don't drill them in the ground--not by any means--but this picture of life is all interrelated. That's just the tip of the iceberg.

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.
