Our professional grant writers know what is needed in a successful grant application. They are skilled at quickly understanding each client’s organisation, the project, program or initiative for which funding is being sought, and the requirements of each grant application.

They then write persuasive, succinct responses to the questions posed in the grant application. They will clearly explain the outcomes that your initiative, program or project will deliver, how the funding will be used and the value that will result.

Our grant writers also make sure that grant applications:

  • Comply with the all the specified requirements
  • Adhere to the word count limits
  • Meet the eligibility criteria

  • Help you to prepare additional required documents, such as the budget plan

How much does it cost to use a grant writer?

Writing your grant application

The cost to write your grant depends on the complexity of the application. The more questions, the longer it takes to write an excellent grant application. There is also the number of meetings and rounds of edits to factor in. The cost also depends on how much information you already have available. When grant writers need to create a lot of the content, the time needed to prepare the application increases.

We’ll discuss what’s needed up front and provide you with a fee estimate.

The fee to write your complete grant application starts from $1,100 plus GST.

Reviewing your grant application

If you have drafted your grant application yourself, we can assist you by independently reviewing, editing and proofreading it before submission.

We will read the grant application criteria and review your draft application in line with this. We’ll give you feedback on the clarity of your grant application’s purpose or ‘why’, methodology or project plan, deliverables and outcomes. Does your draft provide an obvious return on investment? Is it clear what you are proposing and the value this will deliver?

The cost of reviewing your draft grant application depends on the volume of content. We’ll discuss what’s needed up front and provide you with a fee estimate.

The fee to review a draft grant application that you have written starts from $550 plus GST.

GRANT WRITING FAQS

A grant application is simply a document or set of documents that are submitted to an organisation to secure funding for a particular project, program or initiative from that organisation.

Our expert grant writers put together strong grant applications. They:

  • Carefully read through the funding and application requirements
  • Research the grant deliverables and desired outcomes
  • Interview you and your team to collate information about your proposed project, program or initiative, its value proposition, and how the grant funds will be used
  • Write compelling grant applications that meet the application criteria
  • Check that the application complies with all the application requirements

We support professional services firms and services organisations, including not-for-profits, through the entire grant writing process no matter what the size of the grant.

The fee for our grant writers’ support depends on what you would like us to do (write the entire grant application or review a draft grant application that you have written).

We’ll discuss what’s needed up front. You will always receive a fee proposal for your consideration first. You pay only for the hours accrued, nothing else.

To review a draft grant application that you have written, our fee starts from $875 plus GST.

To write your complete grant application, our fee starts at $1,750 plus GST.

Each grant application is different and the time needed to write a great application differs, too. Your grant application might only have a few questions; others can have many more.

We will review the grant application criteria and questions and give you an estimate of time based on our long experience. It’s common for a grant application to take 8 or more hours, sometimes more than 20 hours, just like writing a tender submission.

Among the benefits of using a professional grant writer are:

  • You save time by not having to write the grant application yourself. You’ll have more time to develop the budget for the funding.
  • You’ll be confident that your grant application is well-constructed, fully compliant and free of typos and grammatical errors.
  • The confidence of knowing that all the questions have been answered to demonstrate how much value the funding will deliver.
