Hi, SuperHamster! Thank you for submitting your new Rapid Grant request. We are currently dealing with a backlog of proposals and will review it as soon as possible. Could you please let us know how much of an underspend you anticipate having from your WAM 2018: Preparation grant (since you mentioned it in the application)? If you have any questions about the grantmaking process, let us know. We're here to help you with a successful grant!LSmith (WMF) (talk) 00:50, 13 November 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi @LSmith (WMF): Thanks for the question! I've provided estimates of underspend for each line item. Some of these are underspend since we managed to spend less to get our desired outcome; some of them ended up not being necessary, like translation; and some we simply didn't get to completing due to logistics, not enough time, etc.
  • T-shirts for organizers and outreach coordinators: Underspend (~$300 left)
  • Stickers & Pins: Underspend (~$100 left)
  • Conference Outreach Material: Underspend (~$150 left)
  • Social Media Advertisements (Facebook, Twitter): No underspend
  • Translation of the universal guide: Underspend ($250, not needed due to local volunteer efforts)
  • Infrastructure: Underspend (~$60 left)
  • Bank Transfer Fees: No underspend
  • Unforeseen costs: Not utilized yet, but may be depending on cost breakdown - especially when it comes to local offline event costs.
Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks, ~SuperHamster Talk Contribs 06:41, 17 November 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi, SuperHamster! Thank you for that detail; it will help us as we evaluate this new grant application. As you finalize expenses and underspends for the previous grant please let us know. Best regards, LSmith (WMF) (talk) 19:17, 20 November 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hello SuperHamster, thank you for your patience as we worked through previous grant and current review process. I understand that you have an underspend from your previous grant so please do let us know how much the total is so we can send the difference. I am approving your grant request.

Extension request[edit]

Hello! The project has been going well so far as the international organizing team has coordinated the production and shipping of hundreds of postcards from multiple Asian chapters - though we are still wrapping a few rounds of shipments and reimbursements up, which should be completed within April. As a result, I'm requesting an extension for the grant to May 1 (from April 1). Thank you! ~SuperHamster Talk Contribs 23:40, 29 March 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
