Dr. Veale was professional, communicated well, and completed the editing on schedule. Her work was excellent and I would certainly use her again and refer her to others. I am so glad I found her. Her editing was exceptional and I really appreciated all of her comments to improve the writing in my dissertation. Thanks Dr. Veale!

Randy is down to Earth and very knowledgeable. PPC is a bottomless pit and any business professional can't help but be skeptical considering all the constant calls for Google ranking, like with Alley or whatever Sara. SEO wannabes are a dime a dozen. We spent a couple months doing research and understanding what we wanted and if anything presented to us was legit. Randy was patient, explained things well, provided many many examples, and everything he said was also provided in writing.

Mrs. Goodfellow is passionate about helping others find a career that fits not only their skill sets, but also their passion. She is organized, proficient, and professional. She has a wealth of resources when it comes to assisting with job searches from resume and cover letter revising and/or writing, role playing interviewing techniques, to helping make industry contacts for the job of your dreams. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking at a career change or upgrade. I have also personally recommended her College Consulting services to friends with high school students. Mrs. Goodfellow has a vast wealth of knowledge when it comes to the college admission process (including scholarships, finding the right college for you and/or your child's needs, essay writing at it's finest, etc). I know, she will be my first call when my children hit that age!

    Murray teaches and tutors English/writing at the university where I work. (I'm the librarian.) The amount of work he puts into helping his students never ceases to amaze me, and I've worked with him for 5+ years. He quite literally works magic with his students.

    I take a simplified approach to client projects. Too often we want to keep adding elements to a project because we've seen something on another website. However, it doesn't always make sense to keep adding just to appear like you're keeping up with the competition.

    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.
