I have worked with Dylan for the past 3 months and I train with him 4 times per week. We never do the same workout twice and he is easy to talk to about my life. I can't imagine training on my own after working with a trainer for the first time. I have had my meal plans designed by Dylan for the past month and getting my diet clean has really helped the results in the gym. I don't dread working out and i have friends who pay 5x Dylan's rate and don't even care for their trainers. I was happy to write a review for Dylan when he asked me to. Best in the business.

Brock was of tremendous help in editing my latest book. He is very easy to work with and quite knowledgeable. Both his fee and time estimates were exactly what he promised. I would recommend Brock to anyone looking for assistance involving the written word.

I have been an associate of Anaeus for many years. Many times he’s proofread and edited documents, written emails for me, given me business advice about managing my staff or handling my boss - you name it. I was having a hard time landing a job about four years ago. I typically get offers quickly and easily. Out of the blue it dawned on me that maybe my resume needed work, but I didn’t see anything wrong with it. I sent it to Anaeus, and he spotted the problem right away. He revised it, and I got a call back from the very first employer I sent that resume to! That’s skill. He’s truly got a gift for writing, and you can tell he enjoys it. He’s easy to work with, thorough and patient. He’s my go-to guy for pretty much everything business, and when he doesn’t have the answer he always points me in the right direction. And when it comes to writing, I know I’ve got an expert in my pocket!

Gillian was great! She was very helpful in cleaning up my resume and cover letter to attract employers. She works efficiently and responds to emails quickly. My resume was quickly noticed by employers and I received several jobs offers. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to add a professional touch to their resume to stand out from the crowd.

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.
