Tracy M. says, "Jeffrey conducted extensive research in understanding our not for profit. As a result, he built a detailed and compelling business plan for us. He leveraged the plan to begin seeking out foundations aligned with our mission. Jeffrey identified significant opportunities, and prioritized these. He then began sending Letters of Interest and applying for various grants. Throughout the process, Jeffrey has been very hard working, responsive and outstanding in his professionalism. Although we have not yet received a grant yet because it’s too late in the process to know, I am confident that we have the best chance to receive funds in his good hands. Previous to acquiring Jeffrey as a consultant, we had sought out other grant writers. There is no comparison in the level of expertise among Jeffrey and these other grant writers. They never took the time to understand our business aside from answered questions. As a result, we received information on grants that were simply not aligned with our sanctuary. They also never mentioned the importance of a business plan which is a powerful tool to guide the direction of the sanctuary and convince grant makers to donate to us. I’m now asking Jeffrey to hand off the work to me he’s done on grants and to guide me as needed. I will be leveraging Jeffrey’s expertise now on how to approach corporate sponsors to find more funding opportunities for our capital expenses. If you think your grantwriter is not aligned with your mission. Stop. Seek out Jeffrey for help. He will do his very best to fight for you."See more

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.
