Dr. David Richard played an instrumental role in my development as a writer and a researcher. I'm forever grateful for the amount of effort, detail, and dedication he showed in his work with me. I had the opportunity to work with Dr. Richard for many years, over which time he helped to shape the connection between the sophistication of my written skills and coincident critical research skills. I was also a Graduate Assistant for many of his college classes and observed first hand how he has impacted other's lives as well. I'm confident there are many more who can benefit. Sincerely, Shawn T. Mason, PhD Associate Director of Research and Outcomes Johnson & Johnson Health and Wellness Solutions

Brett made my most recent resume for me. He exceed my expectations of what I asked for. He is obviously a very intelligent man by his extensive vocabulary he used while writing my resume. Best part about this is I got the job! Personally, I would recommend him to any person looking to have a resume that not only stands out but is the most professional. He also was very professional and prompt in responding back to me! Thank you Brett for typing uo the best resume I have ever had!

    About

    In an effort to utilize my skills/education/experience as a volunteer, I am offering free paper editing to high school and/or college students. I have an undergraduate college degree in English/Finance, a Law degree, and much experience with writing/proof reading/editing papers. While attending undergraduate school, I was involved with the writing center and assisted many students with their classroom writing requirements. During law school, I provided the same assistance to other law students as an active member of the law school's legal writing center. I believe volunteering is a great opportunity to give back to my community. That being said, this is a unique opportunity for me to give back but do so while I am at home. Please include a deadline for when you need the draft returned. Let me know if you have any questions and I will be glad to help out. Kelly

    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.
