Dalton's solid. I asked him to help with editing a script I've been working on and he offered great suggestions and helped fine tuning some of the weak areas. I'd definitely hire again and would recommend him for your next project.

Penny was my writing tutor in school, she was very patient and helped keep my papers focused and correct. After her tremendous help I was able to write my own papers, but I enjoyed getting A's so I had her proofread them. I highly recommend using Penny if you need any help writing or editing your papers.

Mary Ann prepared a prenuptial dinner speech poem for me about my bride-to-be. It meshed well with the one the bride-to-be wrote about me. I had a preview copy which I shared with Mary Ann. Mary Ann responded quickly, asked appropriate backgrounding questions, and captured the message I wanted to convey. Well done.

Jessica has been the 'Social Media Expert" for the fitness facility that I manage for almost 2 years now. She has been instrumental in several in-house promotions and marketing campaigns, and I have relied on her time and time again for advice and assistance with social media strategy, content editing, special event advertising materials, and general marketing advice! Jessica's work is high quality, and she treats each project as her own. I hope to always have Jessica 'on my team' in business ventures!

About

I treat every single thing I do as if it were a matter of national security. That can be tough for my fiance when it comes to proofreading wedding invitations. It's great for you. My professional background requires I be able to produce large amounts of copy -- let's say 7,000 words per week -- that is funny, accurate, and well-crafted with as few mistakes as possible. I'm not perfect, but I know from personal experience that snarky internet comments sting. My goal is to make everything I touch engaging, interesting, and -- most importantly -- of a "hanging on the refrigerator" quality.

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.
