When I think of Mrs. E, I think of a passionate, kind, and determined person. My high school career, just like those of my peers, often got very hectic. Between playing competitive tennis, managing a tough academic schedule, and creating time for extracurriculars, I often found it difficult to schedule the time necessary to write flawless and impactful college application essays. However, Mrs. E made the writing process painless, and her helpful and reassuring guidance gave me the confidence to succeed. She supported me from the very beginning of the process, when I needed help brainstorming topics and ideas, which can surprisingly be the most challenging part of applying, to making sure I dotted my i's and crossed my t's. Her dedication, wisdom, and expertise proved invaluable in securing my acceptance to Stanford University, and I recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone interested in perfecting their college application experience!

I would highly recommend Jessica with your writing project. I found her to be organized, knowledgeable and very skillful at the job. Working with her was a delight. I wrote my memories of 125 pages including photos. Jessica was very instrumental in the organization, editing and physical publishing of the book.

Joseph Descans helped me with the editing of several documents. His knowledge and editing skills were outstanding, and his patience with the process was the best part. It can be tremendously frustrating when you have "writer's block" and the words just don't come out right, but a patient tutor is such a great asset to have in your back pocket!

I hired James and Jerrick to take photographs of my wedding rehearsal dinner, and I’ve been raving to people about them ever since. Throughout the process, they were professional, courteous, and on-the-ball. Most importantly, they photographs were fantastic! James has a great eye for interesting candid shots, and Jerrick’s editing is masterful. I would recommend this due without reservations.

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.
