    Nancy Halsey has written grants for our organization for almost 10 years. She has exceptional writing and editing skills. After Nancy wrote a particular grant, the foundation called me to say it was the best well-written grant they had received. I have never received a phone call like that before. Nancy is professional and honest; she uses research and wisdom when writing grants and talking with employees. I highly recommend her for any writing opportunities that you may have. L.

      P. R. Cheek has helped me numerous times on my colllege essays. She was very professional and provided assistance to ensure my papers were cohesive, flowed in a way to make sense, and were on topic. She would tell me what to eliminate from the paper and how to add more descriptive yet pertinent details to make sure my ideas got across. She would explain feedback to make sure you could understand your paper and your voice was in the paper. I got all A’s on the papers she helped write and still use her to this day!

      UNBELIEVABLE! This is the only way to describe the professionalism, passion, detail orientation, skill and pride that Dr. Casandra Levine shows in everything she does. As a small business owner it is difficult to find dedicated professionals who would invest the quality of time, focus and attention to detail to your work the way you would, despite the cost. As a doctoral student, she has worked with reviewing and Editing papers for both me and my cohort, helping our papers shine with the polished look of an accomplished academic scholar. She has not only edited for content, but has been instrumental in keeping my work in line with the latest editions of APA style which is required by my professors. If you are like me, while in the process of studying and working, there is little time to totally commit to the details of style manuals and sometimes inadvertently miss a few grammatical nuances. Having Dr. Levine as my go to editor and second pair of eyes, have given me the peace of mind necessary to focus on the content of my research, my papers and official correspondences. Her technical writing skills, multilevel ability to move between academic, federal, and business writing and editing is hard to beat. My humble thanks Dr. Levine, and I look forward to having you continue to allow me to shine. Regards, Denise Rosier

        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.
