Annie did a fabulous job with editing my son's high school paper for mechanical/content issues. She is highly experienced/talented/caring as a professional, writing tutor. My son will definitely use her again, as she has the proper skills, background, interest, and ability to help a high school student get his final draft paper to the place it needs to be before being turned into the teacher.

Charles was hired as a ghost writer for a book. He took direction from me, the publisher and from the author he was writing for. He was organized and submitted a written plan for the project. He was easy to work with as well as efficient. His writing skills are excellent. He is creative and has an excellent command of the English language. I will continue to use him on other projects.

Lightkeepers LLC, and specifically Courtney Vail, offered my company quality writing, editing, and thoughtful strategy (as needed). Lightkeepers LLC was able to bring fresh eyes to tired marketing language and we've been very happy with the outcomes. We then asked asked for more technically, science-focused writing and Lightkeepers competently, promptly, and professionally delivered on this effort. No matter the writing and editing effort, I would trust Lightkeepers to deliver what is needed.

There are a ton of writers out there. But very few have the patience and sensitivity to really listen to clients, understand their personality and style, and produce fantastic results. I always make sure to get to know my clients before diving into a project--and that way, we don't waste time driving down a road to nowhere. You'll have a stellar piece by the deadline, every time. And, frankly, if you're looking for a writer who can add that rare "zing" to any project...well, I'm your girl. You won't find me anywhere else.

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.
