After that, grant writing services will be billed regularly, based on an hourly rate. While our pricing is representative of our excellent caliber of work, we want these services to be attainable for a range of organizations, and we will do what we can to work with your budget.

About the grant writer
Eric Stoff is the Grant & Proposal Writer for the Yavapai College REDC.
He grew up in Illinois and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Indiana Wesleyan University in 2013. Eric worked as an education reporter directly out of college before starting his career in grant writing.
Eric served as the grant writer and public relations officer for Maconaquah School Corporation, a rural K-12 district in north-central Indiana, for five years. During his time there, he secured more than $1 million in funding through federal, state, foundation, and local grants while marketing and handling the district’s public relations needs.
“I love grant writing because it’s problem solving — using available resources to create a solution for a lack of funding,” Eric says. “And watching a project come to life as the result of a grant award is inspiring and fulfilling.”
Eric joined the REDC in 2021, and he currently lives in Flagstaff. He is a member of Grants Professionals Association (GPA) and the Arizona Community College Coordinating Council (AC4) Grant and Research Subcommittee.
Whether your organization is pursuing a federal, state, foundation, or local grant opportunity, Eric has experience to help in the grant writing process.
