Information and documents needed to process your grant[edit]

  1. Email rapidgrants(_AT_)wikimedia.org.

  3. Non-profit status: Confirm in your email reply that there have been no changes to your organization's non-profit or legal status, or let us know now what the changes are.
  4. Grant information form[1]: Provide information about you and your grant, so that we list the correct information in your agreement.
    If you cannot view or have difficulty editing the pdf form, you may provide the requested information in the body of your email instead of completing the pdf form. Click here to view the list of information requested, if you cannot open the pdf file.
    If you are a fiscal sponsor, provide your organization's information. WMF will work with the grantee regarding the grant agreement related information needed from them.

I confirm that we will receive our grant funds via the same [BANK NAME] account ending [LIST LAST 3-4 DIGITS OF BANK ACCOUNT and/or IBAN] that WMF has on record and that there have been no changes to the bank account signatories - [LIST NAME/S HERE].
