IMPORTANT NOTICE: We have updated our guidelines regarding organizing in-person events with Wikimedia Foundation grant funding.
Our new COVID-19 Risk Assessment protocol for in-person gatherings is designed to be sensitive to the constantly changing circumstances around this pandemic, and allow potential grantees and community members to assess their own ability to safely host events and activities.
If you are planning an in-person event plan to request funding, please follow the steps described in these guidelines before submitting a grant proposal. For current grants already in progress, please contact your program officer if you would like to include or change your activities to include in-person activities.
(effective September 10, 2020)
The Project Grants program funds Wikimedia community members — individuals, groups, or organizations contributing to Wikimedia projects such as Wikipedia or Commons — to organize projects that benefit the Wikimedia movement. Grants are awarded bianually and have a minimum budget of USD 2,000. For grants under USD 2,000, please see the Rapid Grants program.
Grants are generally awarded in four broad categories, but we welcome all ideas!
You can click on the tabs above to learn more about the process of applying. If you are new to wikis and need more guidance to start a proposal, please email us at projectgrants wikimedia · org and we will help you.
If you wish to submit a proposal that includes both community organizing elements and research or software elements, you are welcome to submit a single hybrid proposal in either round. If your project emphases one theme over the other, please submit your proposal in the round that primarily represents your planned work. If you want to consult about which round your project belongs in, please email us.
