Drodzy Grantobiorcy Wikimedia Foundation

We are writing to provide guidance for grant-funded programs during the COVID-19 pandemic. This situation is rapidly evolving, and we have made some decisions that we would like to communicate to you.

Odwoływanie wydarzeń

We have reviewed the current global public health landscape and we ask all grantees to postpone or cancel all public events and activities until the World Health Organization declares the COVID-19 pandemic over.

We know this might be a difficult decision to make, and that this will mean cancelling events of great importance to our community. We understand and appreciate all the efforts you have put in preparing these events, from requesting a grant to public outreach.

However, our first priority is the health and safety of you, your Wikimedia community, and the general public health. Global public health guidance indicates that the more quickly the world responds to a pandemic, the better off the outcomes. In order to safeguard free knowledge, we must also prioritize the well-being of the people who make it possible.

Dalsze kroki

It’s important to keep our communities together and connected during this time. We encourage you to consider if there are other ways you can repurpose the grant funds toward other mission-aligned activities, such as holding events or meetings online.

Your program officer is available if you want to discuss ideas for other ways to use your grant funds, so please reach out to us if you would like to talk. If you are unable or decide not to repurpose your event, you and your program officer will work together to repurpose the funds to a later grant or return the funds to the Wikimedia Foundation.

We are asking people to take this seriously. If we learn that you held an event using Wikimedia Foundation funds after receiving this request to cancel, we reserve the right to withhold funding for future grants.

Jesteśmy tutaj, aby wspierać Ciebie i Twoje społeczności w tych trudnych okolicznościach. Bądź bezpieczny!

Z podziękowaniami,
Katherine Maher

P.S. If you have any questions about this notice or your grant, please contact your program officer.
