My regular hourly rate is $75/hour for funding research and grant writing services. A half-down retainer deposit based on the project estimate is requested before work begins.
No work is ever done on a contingency or percentage basis as this is considered unethical.
Free estimates/bids for your project are provided upon request.
I like to have initial phone consults (at no charge) with prospective clients to discuss funding needs or projects to determine if we are a good fit. If we decide to work together, we will sign a consulting agreement that defines expectations, scope of work and duration of contract.
For clients that wish to set up a "retainer" agreement for ongoing funding research and/or grantwriting, the retainer contract must be for a minimum of 6 months to receive my discounted retainer rate of $70/hr. For retainer agreements, advance payment is due by first day of each month for duration of contract.
It is a personal practice of mine to not submit competitive applications to the same funder/funding opportunity in the same funding round for multiple clients. In addition, long-standing and retainer clients often are given priority in this situation.
I have always enjoyed serving as a resource for pointing nonprofits to resources and information. Please don't hesitate to reach out via the contact form on this site if you should have questions.
