Apoiar em todo o mundo as pessoas e organizações alinhadas com a nossa missão em aumentar a quantidade, qualidade, diversidade e alcance do conhecimento livre.
Please see Grants Strategy Relaunch 2020-2021
A equipa dos Recursos da Comunidade da Fundação Wikimedia, colaboradores da Wikimedia, e as organizações afiliadas trabalham em conjunto.
Nós procuramos e financiamos projetos inovadores e importantes, e avaliamos e partilhamos o impacto do trabalho que se realiza em todo o movimento. Além do apoio financeiro, nós fornecemos aos beneficiários ferramentas, orientação e oportunidades para contar as suas próprias histórias e partilhar os seus conhecimentos.
O nosso processo de concessão participativa é fundamentado com base na wiki.
Os objetivos e metas da equipa dos Recursos da Comunidade são desenvolvidos em colaboração com as comunidades de voluntariado que nós servimos. As decisões sobre quais as propostas a financiar são efetuadas nas wikis públicas e em cooperação com os voluntários e afiliados.
Nós apoiamos projetos orientados a impacto.
The non-profit Wikimedia Foundation is supported primarily by individual donors — readers and content contributors who believe in our mission and rely on our high quality free content. The role of the Community Resources team is to re-invest a portion of that budget back into our movement by supporting projects that further our mission. We develop strong evaluation frameworks and effective strategies for grants, in order to build on past successes and learn from our failures. Our research uses both quantitative and qualitative elements of measuring the impact of grants. Our learning and evaluation team helps our movement as a whole better understand how to realize our ambitious goals, and how to build a wider culture of self-assessment, critical thinking, and knowledge sharing within the Wikimedia movement.
We encourage projects that provide opportunities to reach the Wikimedia movement's goal of spreading participation in free culture across boundaries of language, gender, and geography. We seek out opportunities for growth in under-represented demographics, smaller and newer Wikimedia projects, and emerging communities. We focus on providing individuals within these communities with information and tools to help them succeed.
We believe that a diversity of perspectives is crucial to increasing the quality of the free knowledge resources that our movement provides. Grants can be a powerful tool for encouraging the growth of new projects, supporting the participation of new Wikimedians from more countries and cultures, and for increasing the diversity of contributions within mature projects and in geographies with established communities of contributors. Our goal is to develop and execute an innovative grantmaking strategy that promotes growth among under-resourced and emerging regions, languages, and communities in our movement. We support strategies for narrowing the gender gap in terms of both content and contributors.
Wikipedia and the Wikimedia movement have shown the world what individuals can achieve. Grantmaking at WMF follows the paradigm of our free culture projects of empowering individuals to work collaboratively to make positive change in their own communities. We entrust our grantees with the responsibility to design and lead their own projects, while providing them with resources to help those projects succeed.
A atribuição de subsídios na Wikimedia é uma colaboração entre os beneficiários, pessoal da fundação, voluntários dos comités e colaboradores da Wikimedia por todo mundo. Nós ligamos pessoas de vários projetos da Wikimedia e geografias dentro do nosso movimento mundial de cultura livre.
Grantees are the prime movers of Wikimedia Grantmaking. They identify new opportunities and unmet needs within their local communities and wiki projects, propose projects, and see them through to completion. Grantees work with WMF staff, committee members, and other community volunteers to plan their projects, implement their ideas, measure impact, and share what they learned.
The Wikimedia Foundation's Community Resources team supports six grantmaking streams and Wikimania scholarships—Conference and Travel Support, Project and Rapid Grants, and Simple and FDC Annual Plan Grants. There are six grants program officers, a grants administrator, a conference organizer, and a community organizer. Community Resources staff work closely with WMF's Learning & Evaluation, Education, Wikipedia Library, Community Liaison, Community Advocacy, Analytics, Legal, Finance, and Executive teams.
Grantmaking committee members are the primary advisors and decision-makers within our grants programs. Our five committees are made up of contributors from different language Wikipedia and sister projects, and include volunteer participants from around the world. Committee members provide guidance and feedback to grant applicants, supporting prospective grantees throughout the proposal and review process. Grantmaking committees work with WMF staff to disburse over $8 million in annual funding.
Strong community participation is critical to our success. The broader Wikimedia community participates in grantmaking processes in important ways. Community members endorse and comment on grant proposals, brainstorm bold new initiatives in the IdeaLab, and share knowledge through Learning Patterns. They often participate with specific projects by offering their expertise, such as evaluation support or design help. Multilingual Wikimedians take the lead on translating and localizing grantmaking portals, instructional documentation, project reports, and blog posts, making the process and the outcomes of WMF grantmaking more accessible and engaging to non-English speakers.
Nós valorizamos as ideias audazes e a inovação baseada em dados. A atribuição efectiva de subsídios precisa da participação da comunidade em todas as etapas do processo. Os nossos portais para a comunidade proporcionam espaços de trabalho partilhados para propor e refinar ideias novas, colocar perguntas e partilhar lições valiosas.
