Timelines and Rates

Fee structure 

I provide a statement of work with project fees ahead of project initiation. Although other grant writing services often advertise contingency-based fee structures, I a project fee for the following reasons:

  1. Funders discourage contingency fees and seldom allow a grant writer’s fee to be included in a project budget.
  2. Contingency fees reduce financial resources for startups pursuing the awarded project.
  3. While many hours can go into developing a competitive proposal, funding decisions are beyond the control of grant writers.

Both grants and non-grant consulting work are quoted with a firm and fair up-front rate.


I offer flexible hourly or project-based rates to support your company's desired level of engagement. This can look like:

  • a la carte hourly engagement
  • defined scope proposal review and critical feedback
  • short-term project execution
  • long-term project management and ongoing support

Rate estimates are available within my fee menu.



I work startup hours, and do my best to accommodate clients' schedules and project deadlines, including quick turnaround work. 


That said, communication is key; by reaching out as soon as you are interested in exploring an opportunity, I can ensure adequate time in my schedule to deliver on your goals.
