Hello Kolektyw Kariatyda, thank you for submitting this comprehensive grant proposal. I found your proposal really interesting to read and I appreciate your efforts in detailed planning of your event in terms of outreach, communication, and support. It is also nice to see your paper zine; even if I don’t understand Polish, it seems like a useful and fun outreach material. Thank you for sharing it with us! I am approving your grant request.

Budget change – graphic design[edit]

After a group meeting and a discussion held on 8.02.2020 we would like to request an alteration of our budget. We would like to offer a small remuneration to one of the group members who is designing our promotional materials (used in social media, posters, leaflets, stickers, roll-up etc. – all of them are being published at our Commons page). Therefore, we would suggest a 1000 PLN transfer from the meal/treat position, as we find 3000 PLN to be just enough to cover the basic catering expenses. Our budget after the suggested alteration:

  • artistic profile books - 1000 PLN
  • souvenirs for participants - 300 PLN
  • printing training materials? - 100 PLN
  • printing leaflets and posters - 1300 PLN
  • roll-up printout - 50 PLN
  • roll-up stand - 250 PLN
  • meal/treat - 3000 PLN
  • graphic design - 1000 PLN

TOTAL - 7000 PLN = ca. 1830 USD

We will be very grateful for your approval.

Hello Kolektyw Kariatyda, we cannot approve your budget change request, since per the Rapid Grants Funding Guidelines, the funds may not currently be used as compensation for people’s time. Unfortunately, you cannot use this grant to cover the salary of the graphic designer. Best regards, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 10:36, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
