To whom it may concern: It is a privilege to write a personal Letter of Recommendation on behalf of my trusted colleague, Jo-D Demore, proofreader and editor. Jo-D’s unrivaled skills and ability in this area stem from her uncommon aptitude to condense advanced abstract concepts into clear, concise non-technical language. Her capacity to affect such perfect proofreading/editing changes comes from her dedication to detail while focusing on the core concepts or objectives of the document. She dedicates immense time and effort to understanding the author’s concepts and objectives. This step sets her apart from others that are simply proofreading for grammar because she encompasses a larger overview to ensure materials are not just punctuated correctly, but actually flow and are understandable to potential readers without compromising the intent of the author’s principle concept or argument. One of Jo-D’s specialties, and the one most pertaining to our work, is large written projects that require several revisions as the document develops to its full scope and scale. I have personally used her services over a period of several years for multiple documents consisting of hundreds of pages. As concept, and thus document content, is revised, Jo-D plays as large or small a role as required. She can micro correct for strictly proofreading requirements, and she can also macro evaluate for the larger picture about document content, structure and flow. The normal dynamic between an author and editor is one of contention but not so when working with Jo-D. Her work is exemplary, thorough and timely, and she is a real pleasure to work with. For anyone in need of proofreading or editing, she is a godsend! Sincerely, Joseph V., Ph.D.

      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.
