I have worked with Eden for more than 15 years. It's hard to find a writer that offers both style and substance, but that is her specialty. Eden produces business and editorial content that is smart; tightly edited; humorous when appropriate; professional and strategic; and tailored to her target audience. She also has great project management skills and the ability to work well with a wide range of stakeholders. While her marketing savvy leads to great business results, I most enjoy her wit and observational style on editorial pieces. On a recent series of blogs she produced while traveling across the country, her many readers looked forward to daily posts (and the comments they elicited). Eden is a pleasure to work with and one of those people you can count on to “get it” quickly and deliver consistently great work.

    I recently emailed K&F Fuhrman Enterprises, LLC asking for a quote for her services for our bi-monthly newsletters. I felt that her pricing was very reasonable. The content that was provided was just what I was looking for. I know it is difficult to find the write content writer and with K&F Fuhrman Enterprises, LLC I felt that it was a match. I have used other content writing services and have not been so lucky with the end results. She knew of the topics and you could tell of that in her writing. When she did not know of the topics, she researched the topic in order to provide the piece requested. With K&F Fuhrman Enterprises, LLC , I was more then pleased and look forward to working with her in the near future!

    Laura is amazing. When she first started helping me with my old website, she found pages that, when linked on went to nothing. It was bad. She corrected so many mistakes and helped rewrite content that we were immediately having good responses from patients. She rewrote content for our site and we are getting many patients from our website. We then transitioned to a new and better website. She was so knowledgeable, that I was able to know with certainty that this was a reputable company. She has continued to write ads for us and content for our site. I would have never taken the plunge without her and we are getting so many new patients thanks to her efforts. Why, because they are finding us on the web, thank-you Laura for your expertise. You are professional, smart and a much better writer than I (she is great at correcting grammar, etc). She is the best and I would never hesitate to recommend Laura, her professional skills are outstanding.

    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.
