How to Hire a Grant Writer
Complete a request for a grant writer and we will send your request to highly skilled and experienced professional grant writers. There is a $50 administrative fee for the submission. We will keep you and your company anonymous.
The grant writers will respond with bids for your project; a brief description of their experience and expertise; a list of awarded grants; and writing samples. After you accept one grant writer – the grant writer will be given your contact information and he/she will contact you via phone or email. Together, you and the grant writer will be able to set up an online contract and a series of deliverables for your project.
When the contract email is sent to you – log in and click the link. With the contract (on the bottom of the page), you will be able to review the grant writer’s full resume and two references. After you approve the contract, you pay the agreed upon small retainer (through the grantwriterteam.com portal), and your grant writer will start your project. Want to include a task after all deliverables are complete? Simply ask your grant writer to add a new deliverable and approve it. (Always pay the grant writer through the portal, never through an invoice from them – this way you can immediately get the support of our company – and do not wait – call us about anything – we want to hear questions, comments, and praise!)
Get exactly what you paid for:
We have a great system to ensure that you always get what you paid for and are able to review parts of the work, as completed. When a deliverable is completed, the grant writer will enter the completion date into the deliverable and it will trigger an email to you, that it is ready and how to pay the deliverable.
Within one hour after payment (through our portal) our grant writers are instructed to provide you with the completed deliverable document via email. If you do not receive it (after checking your spam, junk or clutter files) call us – do not wait!
If at anytime you need an additional grant writer (your chosen writer is in the middle of one of your assignments) or you want to change writers mid-stream, you will have ALL your paid for work in your possession. We consider you part of our family and we will clone your original request, (allow you to update it), and then we will send it out to all our writers. We will not charge you the administrative fee.
How Much Do Grant Writers Cost?
Grant writing fees vary according to the grant writer’s experience and expertise, including the economy of the location where the grant writer resides.
Grant writers set their own hourly fees, they start at $40 an hour and up, for research, writing, and curriculum development.
When you present the name of a grant and the URL of a grant application in your request for a grant writer, the grant writer will provide a flat rate for the "entire project". You can list up to four grants in your request. You may also write in your request that you would like a bid of a flat fee for research for a specific number of hours, crowdfunding, curriculum writing or a business plan.
