Chapters may refer to:

Wikimedia chapters are independent organizations founded to support and promote the Wikimedia projects in a specified geographical region (country). Like the Wikimedia Foundation, they aim to "empower and engage people around the world to collect and develop educational content under a free license or in the public domain, and to disseminate it effectively and globally". 41 chapters currently exist, with at least one Chapter on every inhabited continent.

Like Wikimedia thematic organizations and Wikimedia user groups, chapters are recognized through a formal process by the WMF Board of Trustees.
