Excellent. I loved working with Margaret. She goes above and beyond the scope of editing/copyediting, acting as beta-reader and editor all rolled into one. Her feedback was both constructive and sound. I'll definitely be using her for my next book and more.

Iyanna is a skilled linguistic genius! She teaches you to source content from different places. Writing is is an emotional art of words that paint a picture to it's readers. Iyanna guided me to get the thought from my head on to paper. She takes time to effectively teach the process of writing. What i appreciated most was her authenticity. She's transparent so that you can be as well.

Ranjan's company, Big Apple Design Group, is the best website design, programming and development tech company I have ever worked with. From the early stage of project conception through the layout & graphic designs, programming and to the development stage, Big Apple Design Group has proven again and again its expertise in the 21st century tech industry. From my experience, Big Apple Design Group will not only design a professional, cutting-edge, user-friendly, revenue-generating and highly responsive website, this reputable tech company in the heart of New York is always reachable, accessible, has the patience to listen to their clients to better understand their needs, meets deadlines, responds to queries on time, and above all works with and accompanies their clients from conception to the end of the project. Designing, developing and launching a high tech, responsive and user-friendly website is not easy by its nature, but Big Apple Design Group has the capacity and ability to transform a dream to a reality by taking the stress off the client, and mobilizing a team of experts - concept, graphic and layout designers, programmers and developers, market strategists & analysts and database experts - to exceed your expectations. These are the services I received from Big Apple Design Group. I will definitely recommend this company to anybody. From 0 to 100 (0 being poor and 100 being excellent), I will confidently and objectively rate Ranjan and Big Apple Design Group 100.

Lea is an amazing writer. I had the privilege of working with her for two years in college where she reviewed and edited my papers that consisted of many different subjects. Not only does she correct grammatical and structural errors, she guides you to generate powerful and innovative ideas for thesis statements. In addition, she is an outstanding creative writer. She pushes you to go outside of your comfort zone. Thank you, Lea! Your words will change the world.

Virginia helped me write content for my website. When I first met with Virginia I was all over the place and didn’t know what I wanted to say or had too much to say. She guided me through the process of coming up with content and asked key questions to help narrow down what my content would be. In the end she took my jumble thoughts and created concise clear wording about my company. I learned more from working with Virgina than I imagined and don’t have anything to change. She is extremely professional, engaging and thorough.

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.
