Additional Comments from WMF[edit]

Hello Rkushnick, thank you for your grant request. I have one question for you regarding the honorariums. We no longer allow giving cash to other individuals from grant funds. Would you be able to provide gift cards to presenters and artists instead? It can be a visa gift card if that works for you. Please let me know your response and I can move forward with the proposal review. Best regards, WJifar (WMF) (talk) 18:47, 8 February 2019 (UTC)Reply

Hi WJifar (WMF) Let me confirm with the team who is producing the program and organizing the guest speakers and artists, and I will let you know shortly. Thank you, Rkushnick

Hi WJifar (WMF) Unfortunately, it is not the Museum's policy to provide gift cards as payment for honorariums. I have updated our proposed budget to reflect the costs without the honorariums. While we understand you cannot provide funds for cash to individuals, we are grateful for your consideration of our request, and hope you will consider supporting this important initiative.

  1. Food and drink = $750
  2. Miscellaneous supplies, printing costs, photographer = $350
  3. Local travel costs for presenters/artists = $100
  4. Shop merchandise by women artists to recognize exceptional contributions = $200

Total = $1,400 USD

Please let me know if you have any other questions regarding our application.

Thank you, Rkushnick


Hello Rkushnick, thank you for updating the budget. I didn't see the changes reflected on the proposal page so I went ahead and made the edits to reflect what you have put here on the discussion page in the interest of moving the request along. I am approving your grant proposal. Thank you for all the work you do and for participating in this annual edit-a-thon. Best regards, WJifar (WMF) (talk) 17:20, 11 February 2019 (UTC)Reply
