    I operate a small media buying agency and use freelance designers for creative when I have a client who need it. The requests are always deadline-oriented, often with very little notice, but I know I can rely on Kati to deliver each and every time! She has provided graphic design services for print and web ads, logos, posters and more, always carefully listening to the need and presenting a product that is creative, accurate, timely and fills the bill. Not only are her talents and skills excellent, but she is a delight to work with, going above and beyond in her efforts to serve the client, with a genuine interest in their success.

      About

      My work stands out because of my extensive experience. I have more than 30 years of experience in marketing and communications, and more than 17 years of website design experience. I started when Yahoo! had eight links on its home page, and you could get there only through a dial-up modem. So much has changed since then. I have seen trends come and go. I've seen what works, and what has failed in spite of rave reviews. I know when it's best to adapt, ignore, or incorporate something new. My work also stands out because when I design a website, I design the WHOLE website: the page design, navigation, structure, content, photos/graphics, and basic SEO. I am not a programmer who creates a site shell and expects you to fill it. I will write text, take photos, design graphics, shoot video, and do whatever else is needed to make sure your website is complete. And I coordinate this with the marketing efforts you already have in place, so your website enhances your branding strategy.

      About

      I have been planning, writing and editing corporate marketing materials and corporate internal communications for 30 years. Focus on basic financial services materials (retirement investing, mutual funds, etc.). I am familiar with FINRA and SEC regulations for financial marketing communications. In reality, everything is interesting, and from a 20-second radio message to your biography. There's always room to grow: these days I am educating myself to expand into grant proposal writing so I can help your arts, education or health-related nonprofit do what it needs to do.

      Reading and writing is my "thing"... I'm the one who critiques menus and signs for mis-spelling, mistakes and mis-use within a sentence/context. Proper sentence structure, punctuation and spelling have always been a gift with which I was blessed. Too bad I never received any math abilities... :)

      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.
