Comments from WMF


Hi, Strainu, thank you for submitting this new rapid grant request. We will begin its review as soon as possible but in the meantime have two comments:

  • Please note that per our Guidelines and Criteria we do not allow grantees to distribute cash prizes. Your budget includes prizes; will you be able to give gift cards, vouchers, gift certificates, or items instead of cash?
  • Could you please estimate approximate quantities of the promotional materials you are budgeting for?

Please let us know if you have any questions. We are here to help with a successful grant request! Best regards, LSmith (WMF) (talk) 18:50, 17 December 2018 (UTC)Reply

Thank you for the comments LSmith (WMF). We have changed the contentious issues you mentioned. Let us know if you have any other comments or concerns. Strainu (talk) 08:12, 24 December 2018 (UTC)Reply

Thank you for making those edits, Strainu. We have received a high volume of applications, which might delay our response. We appreciate your patience and will review your request as soon as possible. In the meantime, please let us know if you have any questions! Best regards, LSmith (WMF) (talk) 22:56, 3 January 2019 (UTC)Reply

LSmith (WMF), next week is the first event in the series. We understand if you can't approve the grant until then and we have worked with partners to cover some of the expenses, but could you provide some kind of ETA so we can start planning the following events? Thank you. Strainu (talk) 07:03, 23 January 2019 (UTC)Reply

Eligibility Comments


Hello Strainu, I have reviewed your grant request, however, I'm unable to make a decision at this time as we're still waiting on an expense documentation on one of your previous grants. My colleague LSmith (WMF) has sent you an email in regards to the missing information. Once you respond we can proceed with next steps on this request. Best regards, WJifar (WMF) (talk) 01:23, 25 January 2019 (UTC)Reply

WJifar (WMF), I understand the problem has been solved. Is there any issue holding back a decision on the grant?.--Strainu (talk) 08:03, 29 January 2019 (UTC)Reply



Hello Strainu, I'm approving your grant request. Sorry it took a little bit longer than expected to accept this proposal. Best regards, WJifar (WMF) (talk) 18:26, 11 February 2019 (UTC)Reply
