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 three funding programs which support individuals and organizations: the Wikimedia Community Fund, Wikimedia Alliances Fund, and Wikimedia Research and Technology Fund.
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. We understand the worldwide impact of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic and our first priority is to be in solidarity and have flexibility with communities around the world.
