Eric is an incredible person to deal with. Professional, responsive and dynamic in his approach.He updated my website by providing new feature where necessary to make the site more user friendly as well as more responsive to my needs. He was quick, highly knowledgeable, professional and interested. He understands my style and the pace at which I respond, so I applaud him for keeping me in line with patience and professionalism. I look forward to working with him on phase 2 marketing the site and building a lasting relationship with him and MetroCreate. I would recommend his company to large and small companies. They won't be disappointed!

I knew after first phone call that I was going to feel comfortable and confident working with Ken as my consultant. He took an old resume, reformatted it, and revised it. We were able to work together on new document thru shared google docs. He listened and was very responsive as he strove to guide me in the writing process. I now have a cover letter and resume to share with potential employers.

Laura is a talented writer and copy editor. I had the pleasure of working with her on a website redesign project for a non-profit school. She did an excellent job of shaping the entire content script, as well as creating copy that was engaging and user-friendly. She is highly organized, a great listener, and has a good sense of tone and direction.

Our company hired Martha (Penny) Guyer to work with us writing for a New York State grant. As usual we had an aggressive deadline, a number of questions to answer and no real idea on where to start. We were looking for an experienced grant writer who would not only help us write contents, but also guide us and manage the project to ensure we met the deadlines. We interviewed a number of grant writers and decided that Penny was the person for the job. During the project Penny demonstrated to us her ability: • To take our “technical jargon” and to craft it into meaningful paragraphs. • To research specific topics and provide valuable data to support our grants • To manage us and the project to ensure we successfully met our deadlines. • To always be energetic and willing work with us making last minute changes. An example of Penny’s abilities were on display towards the end of our grant writing process. With a week to go, we came to the realization that we were exceeding the maximum characters on all answers! Without hesitation, Penny tackled the problem and worked with us to ensure the message we wanted was not lost as we scaled back the characters to each answer. As of this writing, we are well position to receive our grant. We will definitely engage Penny when we have other grants!

After so much time spent on finding the right wellness coach, someone who listened without judgement, who guided without pushing and instilled confidence while asking for nothing, I found Shelley. The time I spent with Shelley helped me make decisions that I thought were too tough. I was scared to try. She let me see how the scary part isn’t in the trying, it’s in the not trying. I was able to see, not only what I wanted from life, but that I could do it. Thank you Shelley!!!!!

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.
