I have collaborated with Damon Gitelman on a number of writing projects and presentations. His ability to analyze complex subjects and narrow the focus to what the audience can understand is outstanding. His business writing, advertising and newspaper editorial background makes him an ideal choice for large and small writing projects. As fellow writer, I can appreciate the depth of his knowledge and skills in marketing, technical and writing in a variety of styles, including both the Associated Press (journalism) and Chicago Manual of Style (education and science writing). He also is an excellent teacher, presenter and collaborator, should you need someone to help you present your ideas or tell your story. I highly recommend Damon Gitelman to assist you with your writing, editing, and presentations.

    Jeff Gerke edited my manuscript about 3 months ago. His suggestions were straightforward and packed with specific directions on what could be done to improve my writing. I was inspired by his critique, not because he gave me a glowing summary but because he challenged me. By having me believe I could take what I had already written and follow his guidelines, my manuscript had hope. I sensed his sincere involvement is the process of coaching me, and it has proved to be extremely powerful. He has a wonderful gift and it has made a huge difference in my writing. I can recommend two books of his that I believe are "must reads", those being The Art and Craft of Christian Fiction and Plot Versus Character. They are absolutely amazing tools for writing. I feel wildly fortunate that he is my editor. Annette Valentine, Brentwood, TN

    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.
