I wish to let everyone know that Nick is top notch in his field. He is extremely knowledgeable, a very honest and trustworthy person offering his services at fair prices. I had a hard drive crash at the most critical time and Nick treated me more than fair in the cost when others where quoting astronomical prices, Nick was able to recover all of my data in a very short time without losing the information that I needed the most. I was making final edits in my Master's Thesis paper, one week from dead line due date, and you know what happened? The hard drive died, with the last back-up copy of the work was only in the rough draft. Panic time !! Nick recovered the information, copied it to a new drive, and provided me with an external back up drive. Thank you Nick you saved me countless hours of redo work and helped me graduate on time. I would highly recommend Nick Covey to anyone who is in need of data recovery. Thank you again Nick, you are awesome in my book !

Diane worked direct for me as a Tech Writer at DRI corp. She was an invaluable addition to the company and brought order and clarity to all documentation, internal as well as external. She quickly picked up the technical aspects and then inventoried and made a gap analysis of the documentation set. She then worked diligently and effectively with all SME's to close the gaps and reform the entire set of product documentation, with minimal guidance, including technical content and adaptation to specific audiences. I can highly recommend Diane!

    As a freelance writer, researcher and editor, Kat consistently and reliably turns in polished, professional grade work, on time, without fail. I recently hired her to do some research and copy writing for Carolina Partners in Mental Health Care; she finished every assignment well within the deadlines, taking painstaking care to craft well-written, exhaustively-researched pieces without typos or grammatical errors. I now consider her a go-to resource for our company. Kat is highly communicative - if she has questions, she will get in touch with you right away, to ensure that she goes into any assignment with all the requisite information. In short, Kat is a good writer, a hard worker, and a delightful person to work with. I cannot recommend her skills enough.

    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.
