Jessica is has been such an amazing help for me! I have struggled with writing all my life. Throughout high school I barely passed English classes but with her help, I passed all my college English classes with A's. Jessica not only an extremely talented writer but also a joy to work with. Jessica has helped me with proposals, resumes, cover letters, personal statements, essays, and many more. I'd recommend her over any one! You'll be amazed at her work.

Jack Plaxe spent many hours editing my new book. His diligence and superior use of the English language was of tremendous benefit. He is an excellent communicator, making it easy to work with him. I recommend him highly for anyone who needs an excellent editor for a book, report or other manuscript. His talents are many and I will continue to employ him for any future writing projects. If you need a professional writer and editor, I suggest you call Jack Plaxe. He’s the best!

About

Well, hello! How do you do? Me? I'm doing fine. Thanks for asking. I keep myself busy enough through freelance writing and tutoring. I don't know much about you, but I think we would get along famously. I enjoy writing of all kinds, whether that be blogging, ghostwriting, or even simple articles. With concerns to tutoring, my specialty is English and grammar, but if I'm being honest and you seem like the type to appreciate honesty, I prefer speech coaching. I've qualified to nationals in the NCFCA in both limited prep and platform speeches; I like to talk. It was lovely meeting you, and I hope to see you around here again soon.

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.
