Interested in applying for a WMF Grant?[edit]

@Danidamiobi, Zvanstanley, and Lau riuu: Thanks for your work on this idea during the Inspire Campaign to offer a training course. Having read over the proposal, I wanted to ask if you were seeking funding through a Wikimedia Foundation grant: We have Rapid Grants for projects requiring up to USD 2,000 (applications are welcome anytime), and Project Grants for projects requiring more substantial funding (applications for the current round will be due Aug. 2nd). If you are interested, I wanted to offer my support in helping you develop your proposal. A few things you could do to get started include:

  • Specify what causes of harassment you'd like to address with the training
  • Describe what the format of the training will look like, and what sort of topics might be
  • Gather some feedback from editors on the Wikimedia projects you're hoping to improve with this training.

As you work on your proposal, we also have sessions on Google Hangouts on July 20th, 29th, and Aug. 2nd. If you'd like to chat about your proposal at a different time, let me know and we'll try to arrange something individually. Thanks, I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 20:35, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

Grants to improve your project[edit]

Greetings! The Project Grants program is currently accepting proposals for funding. The deadline for draft submissions is tommorrow. If you have ideas for software, offline outreach, research, online community organizing, or other projects that enhance the work of Wikimedia volunteers, start your proposal today! Please encourage others who have great ideas to apply as well. Support is available if you want help turning your idea into a grant request.

The next open call for Project Grants will be in October 2016. You can also consider applying for a Rapid Grant, if your project does not require a large amount of funding, as applications can be submitted anytime. Feel free to ping me if you need help getting your proposal started. Thanks, I JethroBT (WMF) 22:49, 1 August 2016 (UTC)
