Community Resources

We support the Affiliates and contributors of the Wikimedia Movement by offering institutional and individual funding to help achieve the Movement’s goals. To support the movement’s commitment to Knowledge Equity, our team prioritizes proactive outreach to communities that have been left out by structures of power and privilege.

How we work

Our funding is divided into three primary areas: General Support Funds, which support the professionalization and ongoing activities of Wikimedia Affiliates, Conference and Events Funds, which support Movement-led gatherings and convenings, and Movement Strategy Implementation Grants, which are dedicated specifically to implementing the recommendations of the Movement Strategy.

Regional Program Officers work closely with the 8 Regional Fund Committees, which are made up of volunteers from the Movement, to review proposals, provide guidance to grant applicants, and make funding decisions. Additional Program Officers support the Conference and Events Funds and the Movement Strategy Implementation Grants.
