Grant is helping my daughter with SAT tutoring. So far, so good. He has gotten her more engaged in studying for the SAT. He has an excellent grasp on all aspects of the material (math, reading, writing and essay) and strategies, and he has been able to convey the information effectively.

Lisa was quick to respond to my inquiry about writing a resume for me. She gave me a concise list of what was needed for her to get the job done. Within that same day she was working on it, emailing me questions as necessary to perfect it. I had a descriptive, accurate resume to send out to prospective employers within 2 business days! Wow! I already have an interview lined up too! She's the best!

    Mary Alice created a web site for me, which I used to launch a new writing career. She is fully competent in computer skills and software application, and applies a natural sense of practical and artistic sense in web page design. She is patient, a good listener, meets deadlines, and is lots of fun, with a great sense of humor. I highly recommend her for your company!

    The jobs involved collaboration on final editing of documents about complex major capital projects. They included tables and technical analysis as well as descriptive overviews and narrative text. Duane Kelly of Salmon Bay exceeds expectations. He is absolutely thorough and brings clarity to technical subjects.

    Message Glue, specifically Ken Boynton, helped AFC rebuild our website. We went into it with a site from 2010 and, as a registered investment advisor, a lot of government regulation about what could and could not be said. Ken took everything in stride, writing and rewriting intelligent and insightful content for the site, connecting us with professionals who did quality work where he felt his personal skills weren't what we needed, and gave us realistic and valuable feedback on the project. AFC can't recommend Ken and Message Glue highly enough; they are masters of capturing a company's story and taking the time to understand our business.

    I met with Fran to review my resume and letter, to see how it could improve and stand out. Fran was very professional and courteous, and was on time, for our scheduled meetings. She reviewed my resume and cover letter, and with her expert knowledge, and writing skills, was able to help improve my resume and cover letter, so it would stand out. It was with great pleasure to work with Fran. Thanks to Fran, I'm confident I will here my phone ring, for a job interview. I highly recommend Fran.

    About

    I am a writer, mostly for the web but can produce content for anywhere. I've written plenty of articles for allot of different clients about food, health & yoga- but for a long time, I was their ghost writer, therefore my name isn't on allot of the pieces I composed. Here's an example of my work- The ancient practice of yoga is an exercise that continues to be enjoyed by both young and old. And no wonder—it’s not only good for your spirit; it’s also wonderful for your body. A study that tested the effect of yoga on physical fitness found that college-aged students who practiced hatha yoga twice a week for 8 weeks had increased strength. Their arms increased in strength from 19% to 31%; their legs increased in strength by 28%! Yoga has also been cited as a practice to lower blood pressure, and it may be linked to additional health benefits, including improved cognition and respiration, as well as reduced cardiovascular risk. For me, it’s tough to choose between the spiritual & physical benefits of yoga. I need to engage in physical activity, of course, but I enjoy it more when there is a spiritual aspect. It’s wonderful to find a practice that caters to both. I practice mostly Ashtanga & Vinyasa Yoga, which keeps me very interested & physically active.

    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.
