Common Questions

How long does it typically take to write a grant?

The number of hours it takes to complete a grant will vary based on the type of application. Foundation grants can take betweeen 8 to 30 hours while government grants can take between 40 to 100+ hours. Keep in mind that the writing process becomes more efficient with time as you start to build a base of pre-existing, high quality proposals to work from.

Which is better for me: hiring a grant coach or grant writer?

A grant coach is a great option if you or someone on your team have the capacity to write grants yourselves. A coach will help you dramatically improve the quality of your proposals.

A grant writer is best if your primary goal is to increase your organization's bandwidth to submit more proposals.

How does Instrumentl vet grant writers and grant coaches?

Instrumentl only works with writers and coaches whose previous clients have been thrilled with their work. We find past references are the most accurate and fair way to understand writers’ and coaches’ strengths and weaknesses.

What can my grant writer or grant coach help me with?

Your grant writer or grant coach can help you with any part of the grants process. This includes (but is not limited to): assessing if your organization is grant-ready, identifying ideal funders, proofreading & editing proposals, and writing proposals.
