Lisa is an extraordinary career coach and resume writer. Due to a career change, I needed assistance re-writing and re-focusing my resume. Lisa was extremely helpful; she asked well-thought out questions which helped me to clarify where I wanted to go and what I wanted to highlight as part of my resume. She truly helped me to re-brand myself. Lisa is highly professional, personable and easy to work and communicate with. She took all my input and produced a wonderfully written and designed resume that will help me embark on my new career path. Her turn-around time was amazing, too. Within two days of contacting her, I had a brand-new resume in hand! I highly recommend Lisa's services to anyone who is in need of a career coach!!

Working with Sangeeta was a dream come true! Throughout the entire week or so that we revised and edited my senior thesis, she was almost always available, present, committed, and encouraging. I had no idea how genuinely engaged she would be when she offered to assist me. Finishing the project was stressful. I am a perfectionist. But my worries were reduced because of her. I cannot say how many times she wrote and responded to my Thumbtack messages and emails, reviewing 30,000 words more than once. I highly recommend Sangeeta, and, if you have questions, write her. I am sure that her way of going above and beyond will show in her response. Good luck with your project! :)

I’ve always had a fear of stepping out on my creative journey due to the thought of failure; working with Tony helped me get over that. Now I’m in the beginning stages of writing my first poetry book and starting up a jewelry business. I would have never been able to do that without Tony’s support.

Anish always arrived fully prepared for each lesson. He is super capable and has a way to make even mundane material somewhat interesting. I would recommend him to anyone that wants to increase their score, and fast. He is also an excellent writer, and really put these skills to work when brainstorming with me for my personal statement.

Julian is a thorough editor with a keen eye for detail. He has edited everything from essays to manuscripts for me and has taken my work from good to great. He is proficient at syntactical and grammatical feedback, but he has offered developmental and global insights on my work that ultimately made it publishable. I am always recommending Julian and his writing services to my friends, and I will continue to use Julian for all my writing projects in the future.

I've been CEO of my late husband's SaaS business for the last ten years. As such, it's been a long time since I've written a resume. I was in total chaos selling my business and looking for a new career. Brian, helped me layout all the responsibilities and positions that I preformed during my tenure at the software company along with my own 20 years in the hospitality industry. Brian was great to work. He is warm and well versed in career coaching, resume writing and helpful hints on interviewing. His process consisting of a two hour interview, a follow-up review session, and as many drafts and edits as needed. I also had him re-create my LinkedIn profile, cover letter, and recommended resources for successful interviews. The end product was excellent and concise. His rates are reasonable,. He is a talented man with a wealth of experience. I recommend him. I've already gotten two interviews in one week.

I have been writing for many years and have worked with Jim on a number of projects. I continue to be amazed at how quickly he is able to flush out the most important aspects of the writing so that the message is clear, concise and impactful. His explanations for his rationale for editing changes provide assistance in improving my skills. As an added benefit, he is personable and witty, which helps lighten the burden and tedium of the revision and editing process. Jim is an integral member of the team of freelancers with whom I work. He provides a unique and invaluable perspective and his skills and temperament meshes well with those of other team members. I am appreciative of his assistance and have no hesitation recommending Jim.

Francesca is extremely patient and very good with kids. She engaged my very hyper active son and has been a huge part of getting him ready for first grade reading and comprehension. She was always on time, always upbeat and he enjoyed his summer lessons a great deal. 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.
