Allison helped me with my personal statement for medical residency applications. She did an awesome job editing and guiding me through a rewrite of the piece, and is a really careful reader who is obviously very used to working with people to improve their work. I think she struck a really good balance between giving specific feedback to improve the piece and maintaining a positive tone. I was really happy with the results and received many positive comments on my personal statement throughout the interview season. I would definitely have her edit my work again, and would recommend her to anyone else in the same situation.

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!

I recently hired Kathy to assist me with the business plan for my soon to open restaurant. She was prompt,thorough and very easy to work with. She brought to the table excellent ideas, researched demographics, and tweaked my plan to make it appealing to bankers and investors. She knows what it's like to open a business and openly shares her knowledge. I highly recommend Kathy for any writing,editing, or drafting projects you may have.

    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.
