I originally contacted Brendan Moore for assistance with writing my resume. After conversations with Mr. Moore I learned that he was willing to collaborate with me to provide life coaching as well crafting a business plan for my fledgling Thermal Imaging business. I found him to be pleasant, knowledgeable, easy to work with, and flexible. I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need of such professional services.

I called Dennis and asked him about writing a resume for me, He said it would be no problem and that he was a writer, we agreed to meet at a Tim Hortons . We met there and went over everything he was easy to talk to and very helpful, He had some great ideas and when it was all over in about one day, it looked very professional and had a new job within a week. He mailed me a copy of it on a cd so I had it for my records. He was very professional. I would highly recommend Dennis.

Working with Premier was great. She helped me write a resume and she even gave me tips on how to revise my resume just in case I needed to cater it to another job. She gave me advice on searching for jobs and what types of jobs in addition to the ones I was regularly applying. I was having a hard time getting a call back.

My experience with Jeremy´s service was positive. I sent him a draft of my cover letter and the link to the related job opening, he carefully read the job description and thoroughly made adjustment to my draft. His corrections to my cover letter weren't just based on grammar and spelling errors, but was an approach how a person with eloquent writing skills would write it. I will use his service again.

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.
