Non-financial requirements[edit]

See a description of nonfinancial assistance available. You should inform Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) of any such requirements now.

  • There are no significant non-financial requirements, but we are in a process of learning and sharing our experiences.


This section will describe how the proposed project is related to the Wikimedia mission and Wikimedia's strategic priorities. It will also provide information about other benefits to Wikimedia communities.

Fit to strategy[edit]

How will this project support the key organizational objectives of,
  • increasing reach (more people being able to access or contribute to Wikipedia or our other projects),
  • participation (more people actually contributing),
  • quality (more useful content or higher quality existing content),
  • credibility (more trust in our projects),
  • organizational maturity and effectiveness (how it will move your chapter or the Wikimedia community as a whole forward),
  • or financial sustainability (how it will help your chapter achieve more in the long run)?
This statement should address at least one of the strategic priorities listed here specifically. See WMF Grants Program criteria for decisionmaking.
The project will strengthen the ties between the Danish Wikipedia and the GLAM sector and push the sector towards more openness, leading to better content.


If your project will benefit a specific online community, please list that here. For example, English Wiktionary.
This project will directly benefit Danish Wikipedia, as we expect to increase the number of expert editors on that project by working in the GLAM institutions.

Provide a brief statement (about 1 paragraph) about how your project is related to other work in the Wikimedia movement. Does your project fit into a work area such as GLAM, Education, Organization Development, Editor Retention, or Outreach?
This project falls into the GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives, and museums) program area

since it will be targeting Wikipedians working with these institutions.

If successful, does your project have the potential to be replicated successfully by other individuals, groups, or organizations? Please explain how in 1 - 2 sentences.
This project can be replicated in other countries with publicly-funded GLAMs, especially in Northern Europe.
Please list any other benefits that this project will produce.
This project helps train Wikimedia Danmark in the grant process..
