Simple, my experience meeting & working with Samara was excellent! It became obvious she had the experience and career insight into creating and writing resumes, and had some great tips to pass along. I liked the fact, she does not waste time and her diving right in and asking thought provoking questions about my skills and background were exactly what I needed. I believe she helped me to put my best foot fwd., and was well worth the investment.

Karen is amazing, professional, and a wonderful person all around! I am sometimes a bit hesitant to reach out to people on Thumbtack because of the unknowing factor. Karen immediately put all of those worries away when I first contacted her. She followed up with an email, then requested permission to send a text which led to me contacting her on the phone. I was recently involved in a legal matter and needed to have a professional proofread my legal documents before I submitted it. Karen listened to me on the phone for over an hour to understand the background story of what I was writing about. She took her time with me and in a warm and caring way asked specific questions in order to gain a better understanding of the situation at hand. This was an emotional document I had to submit and she stayed on the phone with me and listened and was patience. Because how legal documents go, it took about 2 weeks until I could give her the actual document to proofread. Throughout these 2 weeks she kindly sent text messages a few times to follow up and to check in how I was doing. When I finally gave her my document, she had it proofread and returned back to me within 48 hours. She followed up with a text and a phone call to see what I thought. She trusted me to pay her, even though my work schedule put off paying her for a few days. After I paid her, I followed up a few days later with a change I needed to make in my document. She responded to me promptly, (within minutes) with help. She also told me that if I ever needed anything to give her a call and to let her know how it all works out. I HIGHLY recommend her services. She is a wonderful person, negotiated price with me and gave me a flawless document that I felt at peace submitting. Thanks Karen!! :) (Sorry for all the grammar mistakes in this review).

My husband Jay last minute to help my husband with a writing project. We gave him a very short timeline to have the work completed (next day) and he delivered an amazing paper. He is truly good at what he does. We will definitely use him for future projects and recommend him to others.

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.
