Eligibility criteria

Specific Criteria

  • All requests between 500 USD and up to 5,000 USD will be considered (or its equivalent in another currency at the time of the application).
  • Individuals, groups, and organizations may apply.

The total grant value accessible annually, in the given fiscal year (July 1 – June 30, for example, 1 July 2022 – 30 June 2023), will be up to USD 10,000, encouraging applicants to move into longer term planning in the General Support Fund program when more resources are needed.

  • Within the last year, applicants have not been blocked, banned, or otherwise flagged by Wikimedia Foundation staff or another affiliate for violations of Universal Code of Conduct and Friendly Space Policies, or for other types of violations or conduct issues. If such issues have occurred in the past, the applicant is required to demonstrate learning and understanding in regard to the cause for the issue, such that they are ready to serve as a role model for others as a grantee.
  • Within the last year, applicants have not been repeatedly blocked or flagged for the same issue and/or have not been banned on the Wikimedia Projects.
