Kathleen is an amazing public relations professional who can do a lot with a little and is incredibly resourceful. While she was on our committee for the 2015 American Foundation for Suicide Prevention's Out of the Darkness Walk, Kathleen was able to take our nationally approved press releases and build off of them to personalize for our chapter while adding emotional photos to convey the message. Kathleen is also very social media savvy and was able to communicate with the local media via Twitter, which resulted in one of our representatives being interviewed on a morning news show. She also managed our Facebook page and was able to get the most hits on any of our posts utilizing minimal funds. Kathleen's passion shines through her work and anyone would be lucky to have her in their communications department.

I "build" no "dog houses," only "mansions." A client -- no matter whether paying an hourly rate or for a project -- always receives from me mansion-quality work. Before freelancing as an editor, proof reader, I was an accredited Public Relations counselor to several Fortune 500s and did extensive writing. The latter included brochures; news releases; communication plans; and crisis communication plans, and media and presentation training. Special event planning and implementation and editing Ph.D. candidates' dissertations are also in my portfolio. I have been published in magazines of the USO, Military Writers Society of America, and U.S. Submarine Veterans, for example. WWII USS Cod submarine/museum (Cleveland) and my community are among area for which I volunteer. If you want a mansion, I your person. .

If you are unsure if your piece of work won't grab the reader's attention or if your grammar is not perfect, I am the person you are looking for. I take pride in being asked to look over friends', associates', and family members' resumes, speeches, and the like. I believe that I have a way with words but I am still able to write what YOU want me to write, the way you want it to sound. I also have a vivid imagination and can easily put thoughts to paper.

No job is too large or too small, and I am very flexible; I deftly tailor my work according to the needs of each individual client.

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.
