The Wikimedia Foundation supports individuals and organizations around the world to increase the diversity, reach, quality, and quantity of free knowledge. We promote knowledge equity aligned with the strategic direction of the Wikimedia movement. Our funding programs are focused on decentralized decision-making, regional committees, and reaching underrepresented communities.
Our people-centred approach is built on the principles of equity & empowerment, collaboration & cooperation, and the promotion of innovation and learning. We have four funding programs which support individuals and organizations: the Wikimedia Community Fund, Wikimedia Alliances Fund, Wikimedia Research and Technology Fund, and Movement Strategy Implementation Grants.
The Wikimedia Foundation Funds are supported by the Community Resources team. Our team provides consistent regional support and contributes to the establishment of a learning mindset.
