Wikimedia Deutschland offers a diverse program of different grants, for an overview see the grant category in the German Wikipedia (in German).

  • Library and literature grants (WMDE offers grants to volunteers who need special and/or expensive literature for their Wikimedia-related voluntary work. Furthermore, WMDE offers to pay library registration and lending fees)
  • Small grants for the community (up to 5000 Euro; so-called Community-Budget), for almost any Wikimedia-related activity or event
  • Big grants for the community (over 5000 Euro; so-called Community-Projekt-Budget). Decisions on requests are take twice a year by a special commitee consisting of several chapter and community selected members.
