    When I took my master classes, I had an outstanding experience with Cody as teammates on several courses, like Markting Management, B2B Marketing. For business students, handing reports and other writing stuff is pretty important for us. Our potential stakeholders will refer to these resources for the info they need. Cody's solid foundation and talent in writing did us a great favor when we tried to complete our reports, presentations and so on. Sometimes we may have lots of ideas but have no ideas about how to organize then clearly and logically. This seems a big problem for most teams. But this would never be a problem for us because we have Cody! He is the vital reason why we could win the highest marks in several teamworks and gain nice reviews from professors.

    Marcia has done freelance writing work for me for almost 5 years now. I know I can always count on her for high level work delivered on time. Her attention to detail and ability to quickly learn about whatever business vertical she's writing about is difficult to find. Marcia is efficient, detail oriented and very intelligent; an asset to whomever she writes for!

      Michael was very knowledgeable and helpful. He offered concise constructive criticism for my paper without being overbearing. I would definitely work with him again and recommend him to others seeking tutoring, editing, or writing services.

      I have used Kevin for a handful of content writing projects. Kevin is reliable and writes great content. I often edit the projects that I receive from other writers that I use, but with Kevin I have very few changes. He understands my needs and creates the content I am looking for. I enjoy working with Kevin and find him reliable and easy to communicate with.

      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.
