Sandy has done a terrific job. She is an excellent writer, but, more than that, she takes the time to figure out exactly what your goals are, and then tailors her writing to be in line with those goals. She is also prompt, dependable, and charges extremely reasonable fees. I highly recommend Sandy for your writing needs!

Keith was very interested in learning about what I needed and how he could help me. I could tell he is passionate about helping people meet their career goals. He has many years of healthcare HR experience, which is exactly what I needed help with. We met for two hours and I had a newly polished resume when I left. His prices are also very reasonable compared to others. He has sent emails after our meeting to check up on my progress, which showed me he is truly interested. It can be difficult navigating the healthcare job market, but having someone with experience to guide you is very reassuring.

I’ve known Karin McKie since 1997, and she’s passionate and reliable in everything she does, as a publicist, marketer and arts administrator, an actor, writer and educator. I worked with her at Stage Left Theatre where her leadership and creative problem solving facilitated successful productions and effective community outreach. She’s flexible, invested and creative with every project, and I would wholeheartedly recommend working with her and taking advantage of her many skills and experiences.

My sincerest gratitude to Tammy for enriching me by guiding me to find my deepest talents; for inspiring me by quoting insights on how to be a great writer from a variety of astute sources; for encouraging me with her kindness and understanding of the big picture and my personal ones. If there was a letter grade better than an A++, I would give her that esteem.

Reno created a captivating video trailer for my new novel SECOND CHANCE which is due out in November of 2013. The video captures the suspense and excitement I wish to portray to my readers and I'm sure will help me to attract new readers. During the process, Reno was always willing to answer questions and provide feedback. Even when I had trouble viewing the trailer because of my computer issues, Reno was patient. He loaded and re-loaded the videos until I was able to see them. He is a consummate professional.--David Perry, national best-selling author, www.davidperrybooks.com

Marissa was an excellent tutor! She helped me with my English homework and because of her I got a much better grade in the class. I feel like I am a better writer because of her and I use the skills she gave me in all of my writing assignments now. She was incredibly professional but also very friendly and easy to talk to. Essay writing is now so much easier for me because of the the things Marissa taught me. I would recommend Marissa as a tutor to anyone looking to improve their writing.

Becky is a passionate and creative writer. She has the ability to craft your message in an appealing and sophisticated fashion. But equally important, she will help to take your idea from your brain to paper more articulately than you even intended. Her targeted questions that she will ask you in helping to extract your goal is the real payoff. Worth every last penny!

I have known Wendy Lalli for many years. She is the consumate professional in the Communications Business; not only a strong writer, but an inspiring speaker. Wendy has come to my marketing classes at Columbia College many times to share her insights, wisdom, and advice with my students. Her style is approachable. Her knowledge incredible. Her ability to change lives with her words, unmatchable. She tells her story beautifully, underscoring her humanity. She inspires each of my students to take leaps of faith, follow their own paths, and believe in themselves. I would hire her for any speaking engagement I could, she is that good. Susan Geffen

I contracted Jack out to do copywriting for my website along with drafting business proposals for some of my prospective clients. He has a strong grasp of language and prose, which has helped me appear both knowledgable and professional in the eyes of clients. As far as creativity and insight, he is the best writer I’ve worked with on any such projects. I would highly recommend him for this sort of thing!

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.
