To Hire or Not to Hire a Professional Grant Writer?

That is the question that many nonprofit and government professionals struggle to answer. Using a grant writer is an additional—sometimes unanticipated—expense of an organization…and, there are no guarantees of a return on one’s investment when using a professional.

  • Option #1. Using existing personnel to write grants
  • Option #2: Hiring a grant writer as an employee
  • Option #3. Outsourcing a grant writer subcontractor
