After a chat with Wittylama, who recommended me to add some contextual information, I added some context to the grant proposal. --Nikola (talk) 16:05, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

Hi Спасимир. Thank you and the Bulgarian user group for this grant request. We appreciate the clear rationale and context for the request and are happy to support the purchase of two scanners. The level of volunteer engagement, established partnership and program, and high encyclopedic value of the content make this an easy decision. It's great to see that 91% of the images already uploaded as part of this partnership are in use on Wikimedia projects (and 35,000 image uses of the over 6,900 images from the State Archive!). After the partnership is over we assume that the equipment will then be stored with the user group and used for other projects. Best, Alex Wang (WMF) (talk) 23:58, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
