Some questions to clarify your proposal
- It seems your project goals are internally focused on the Wikimedia communities and Cleveland Museum of art staff as identified in the Problem to Solve, and not on the aspect of the solution, which involves "utilize The Cleveland Museum of Art’s Open Access images and data beyond the institution itself." Can you clarify the connection between this proposed position and the museum's mission which you stated at the beginning of the proposal, as "bringing CMA’s mission “For the Benefit of All the People Forever.”" Is this proposal intended only for museum internally or will the proposed editathons also figure into the success metrics?
- The connections between the project goals and project impact are unclear. Can you clarify how they connect together?
- Additionally, the initial impact measurement tools measure, though it is unclear if you want to measure in general or if there are any targets you are seeking to measure against.
- Concerning your budget, can you clarify how much work you expect this 6-month position to do, and if the requested amount will be enough for it?
- You do not have any funds listed for travel or resources related to editathons. How will those be accounted for?
- It is unclear what the list of participants are. Are these people who have committed or are involved in some way?
- None of the participants listed have endorsed this proposal, and there are not any endorsements at all. What levels of Wikimedia community support does this proposal have?
- This is just a message to notify HeatherSaundersCMA to the above questions. Thanks, I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 22:25, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Round 2 2018 decision
This project has not been selected for a Project Grant at this time.
We love that you took the chance to creatively improve the Wikimedia movement. The committee has reviewed this proposal and not recommended it for funding. This was a very competitive round with many good ideas, not all of which could be funded in spite of many merits. We appreciate your participation, and we hope you'll continue to stay engaged in the Wikimedia context.
Next steps: Applicants whose proposals are declined are welcome to consider resubmitting your application again in the future. You are welcome to request a consultation with staff to review any concerns with your proposal that contributed to a decline decision, and help you determine whether resubmission makes sense for your proposal.
Over the last year, the Wikimedia Foundation has been undergoing a community consultation process to launch a new grants strategy. Our proposed programs are posted on Meta here: Grants Strategy Relaunch 2020-2021. If you have suggestions about how we can improve our programs in the future, you can find information about how to give feedback here: Get involved. We are also currently seeking candidates to serve on regional grants committees and we'd appreciate it if you could help us spread the word to strong candidates--you can find out more here. We will launch our new programs in July 2021. If you are interested in submitting future proposals for funding, stay tuned to learn more about our future programs.
