How Do I Hire a Certified Grant Writer?

Some of AGWA's Certified Grant Writers® work as Consultants and are available to work for your

organization. You will need to give us basic information

about your organization and then AGWA will match

your needs with a Certified Grant Writer® who has

experience in your field.

Unfortunately, not everyone or every business qualifies

for grant funds.

Non-profit Organizations with an Exempt Letter from

IRS may qualify for Foundation Grants as well as

Government Grants.

For profit businesses (corporations, partnerships, or sole proprietors) may qualify for Government Grants

depending on the specifications of the agency.

Individuals such as artists, educators, and health

professionals may qualify for a small number of

Foundation Grants depending on the specifications.

Other individuals may qualify for government grants;

many of these grants are administered by State and

Local Governments.

When you contact them, they will tell you whether or

not you or your organization is a prospective recipient

of grant funds.

Their Consultants will offer you a variety of services

such as:

They will research grant opportunities for you or your organization. Please refer them to our Funders page as

well. We list 100’s of funding sources. Many of them

have collected money specifically for Haiti and/or to

use in other areas in humanitarian crisis.

They will write proposals to foundations or applications

to government agencies

They will review a proposal or application that you

have already written

They will develop a business plan for your organization

They will write an annual budget or program budget

for your organization

They will train your staff to research grant opportunities

and write proposals

You will be quoted an hourly rate or a project price,

similar to other professions. Rates are usually $40 -

$100 per hour for researching grant opportunities and

writing proposals. As a new client, you may be asked

to make a down payment, or to pay in full when the

proposals are delivered to you. It is unethical for a

Certified Grant Writer to accept compensation that is a percentage of your grant funds. It is also unethical for compensation to be contingent upon receipt of grant

funds.

organization so that AGWA can determine your eligibility
