“Our non-profit organization 'Bangladeshi American California Society' (BACS) recently received our "Tri-Folder' complete amazing colorful design artwork from Sabina Islam, and we are once again thrilled with the lay- out and art-work she developed for our Special Event in Los Angeles. She managed to capture the perfect essence of what our event stands for in her creative and striking design. Our invited guests are able to identify our organization through the impressive branding she has designed for us with her outstanding creative ideas. Sabina islam was even able to work within our extremely tight deadlines. It was a very short notice..literally less than 48 hours to complete the design with our event's pictures, texts etc. We are so grateful to have an excellent 'Graphic Designer' like Sabina, who has such a " deep commitment to the community, helping us with all our design needs. We really appreciated Sabina Islam's flexibility and efficiency. Giving great direction as well as listening to ideas is what makes Sabina Islam an amazing creative professional. It’s great to work with someone so open-minded and responsive. I would recommend her to any prospective clients, friends or employers and I have a high level of respect for her. Thank you for completing our project creatively, professionally, and promptly, and for an overall positive experience.”

Mauri was by far the easiest to talk to, friendly and above all, intelligent, organized and creative minds I have ever encountered. Always terrified writing my own resumes, with several bad and uncomfortable experiences with third party companies who never seemed to listen or convey the information I gave them, it was a true breath of fresh air to find Mauri. Not only did she actively listen to me go on and on with the patience of saint, but was kind enough to help me find the self esteem and for the first time in my life, have a resume I not only feel comfortable representing me, but proud to present to perspective employers. Too bad there aren't 100 more like her.

Cynthia is my writing consultant and she is amazing. From the first session with her my writing jumped on track and began to flow. She not only inspired me creatively, she helped me focus on the mechanics of breaking down my story. Work with her - she will help you get the story you want to tell, out.

I worked with Emily Kazmierski for 3 years. We have both grown in the field of editing. She is an accomplished editor and writer. In fact, she trained me and was very patient and knowledgeable. She possesses all the techniques and skills for editing and writing, and her turnaround time is outstanding. Her attention to detail (especially comma splices) is exceptional, and her ability to stay organized is excellent. Emily is a true talent in the field of editing and writing, and anyone who has worked with her knows of her gifts. She brings a great deal to the table, and I believe that she is the finest editor and writer around.

Kerry tutored my daughter, who was 8 and then turned 9 at the time, in math and other subjects. Kerry encouraged her to use her creativity and imagination to think outside the box and get the job done. Kerry was extremely reliable, trustworthy and dependable. Her communication with me was always appreciated and my daughter really enjoyed spending time with 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.
