Improving the Wikimedia movement’s work with content partners
Establishing a partnership
The road towards a content partnership might seem long and difficult. How do I find a good potential partner? How do I reach out to them? How do I pitch the importance of working with the Wikimedia movement to them? And if they are finally convinced, should we formalize our work – and in that case, how?
This page aims to help you if you want to start the journey towards a successful content partnership.
The Helpdesk can support in various ways:
- By helping draft, compile or find material that can help you, be it:
- By putting you in contact with Wikimedians who have been in similar situations and have previous experiences
To start a new request to the Helpdesk, send an email to helpdeskwikimedia.se. In the request, it is great if you try to respond to these questions:

- Have you identified any possible solutions? In that case, which?
- If we would succeed in achieving the change you want to see, what possibilities would open up then?

- Memorandum of Understanding (often abbreviated MoU)
- Partnership agreement
Here are a few examples of what it could look like:
