Diana Matthews is a wonderful proofreader/editor. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. She not only corrected the punctuation and grammar in my book, she caught inconsistencies, repetitions and clumsy sentences, offering suggestions throughout to make it better. I look forward to using her brilliant skills and sage advice on my next project.

Dana is patient and is a great teacher. I speak English with a Spanish accent due to being originally born and raised in a Hispanic culture. She helped me pronounce the words better so people can understand me better when I communicate. She helped a lot with my English grammar skills, vocabulary and editing. I highly recommend her. She is an excellent tutor.

I have worked with Dr. Mayorga multiple times over the past year. I am a small business owner and I often need assistance with special projects that require in-depth presentations or lengthy proposals. Writing and organizing information are not things I enjoy doing, so I was pleased to find someone with such a well honed skill set. Dr. Mayorga is a pleasure to work with! I would not hesitate to recommend her consulting services to others.


I was born Skye Hoffman in Heidelberg, Germany. In 2010, she graduated with her AAS in Lasers and Photonics as well as a Certificate in Electronics. She married her high school sweetheart in January 2013 and currently lives in North Carolina with her husband, two daughters, and two birds as well as a house full of dragons and wolves. When not working or writing, Skye spends her free time wrestling children or failing miserably at video games—mainly Borderlands 2. To quote Isaac Asimov, "I write for the same reason I breathe ... because if I didn't, I would die." Editing the words written followed afterwards. Now I write with the intention of publishing my own work and edit other's written words to help them along their own publishing journeys.

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.
