Laura contacted me almost immediately once I put in a request for a professional bio. She spent time on the phone with me asking all the right questions to make my bio fit perfectly. Laura Hill is a remarkably intuitive writer and I couldn't be happier with my finished product.

He has done several of my websites and graphic design work over the years. He does outstanding work that's user friendly and finishes it very prompt. It's quality work for a great price and not some cheap template website that other companies try to sell you. Mike is also always on the cusp of whats new and applies it to all of his work. All of my sites are mobile friendly and come up on google searches due to his SEO knowledge. I highly recommend him!!

Over the past 20 years I've worked with Dan on a full range of marketing and advertising jobs and campaigns that included writing, conceptualizing and production of digital, print, websites, radio, TV and video. Whether these jobs had minimal budgets or were large-scale productions you always got the same high-level focus, determination and skill level from Dan. Dan's writing and ideas for websites, SEO, long-form video, tv spots, radio spots, direct advertising, brochures and collateral is always consistent in that it's strategically on-target with message and style. Writing and producing messaging that resonates with it's audience is what Dan's work is all about.

It was a pleasure working with Ne'Richa on this important project. The consummate professional, she guided me through each step of her composing process and made herself accessible to me at all times. Because she wanted to make sure I was a satisfied customer, she asked for feedback on a regular basis and cheerfully revised songs as needed.

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.
