Colleen is really special. I’ve been working with her for the past few months on a diverse range of creative, academic, and emotional goals: she is helping me develop my Master’s Thesis at Columbia University, publish my first zine of comics, and proactively plan and prioritize my life from a place of independence and strength. Colleen’s specific toolset and background are perfectly suited to provide practical support as well as creative inspiration in each of these areas. As a creative herself, she has pointed me towards references and directions that are spot-on and invigorating, while at the same time offering a larger structure and organization for my work that allows me to actually get things done. One of the most concrete benefits I’ve experienced from working with Colleen is a huge improvement in my productivity and mood during the work day. Colleen crafts personalized schedules for my day based on neuroscience, and as a result I have literally doubled my essay-writing speed. Colleen is incredibly talented on an emotional level as well: she creates a safe space and time that is just for me, and I can tell that she is really listening and actively thinking about my goals because of her invariably insightful responses. It’s been wonderful having such a supportive partner in my life, and best of all, it is so fulfilling to actually accomplish goals that I’ve dreamt about for a long time. Colleen is magic – her coaching is the best thing to enter my life in a long time and she has my highest, most enthusiastic recommendation.

Deborah Drake is incredible! I was first introduced to Deb over a year ago, after she invited me to be a part of her weekly writing group we affectionately called “Tuesday’s with Deborah” or better known to us as “A Writers Support Group for Reticent Bloggers.” She created a safe haven for writers and bloggers to incubate their ideas and share thoughts weekly. Which turned out to be some of the best inspiration, not only for my writing, but for my business as well. I have also had the opportunity to work with her on my first book, “The Art of Working for Yourself” which she was my editor and voice on my shoulder, helping me get out of my own way. I have to thank her for helping me keep my writing voice as the project went along. As tough as the process sometimes was for me, Deb was pivotal in making sure I stayed on track and helped me flush out ideas from the cover to my bio. I would work with her again in a heartbeat. What more can I say, Deb is good at what she does.

I have worked with Lynn for over 20 years, and in that time she has consistently produced the most creative writing solutions to all my work challenges. She has never been at a loss for ideas and clever ways to address a topic. Writing is not my strong suit so I always turn to Lynn for that. She does more than just write well. She takes her readers on a most delightful ride as she spins her tales...whether it is a simple flyer or a more complex brochure. Lynn understands what it takes to capture a reader's interest, and to me, that is what makes her so successful.

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.

Kevin's training and coaching approach is welcoming, and relaxed. I have personally been coached by Kevin and always felt I had not only his ear and guidance, but his support. He has a very unique way of defusing any situation and guiding participants to discover successful solutions. My career took on a whole new meaning under Kevin's coaching and mentor ship. Although I was in the correct field, Kevin assisted me in finding the specific job duties that allowed me to utilize my gifts and move from a job I enjoyed to a job I love.

I highly recommend Mark Brown for tutoring. We were referred to Mark Brown when my daughter was a junior in high school. He helped my daughter to become an organized writer, helped her prepare for her SAT'S and I am proud to say she was accepted to all 4 of the universities she applied to. My daughter currently attends the UW and I credit Mark in not only helping her boost her testing skills but her academic confidence as well.

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.
