Revenue generation for the Movement
Increasing the Sustainability of Our Movement requires diversifying the sources of funds by seeking more revenue generation for the Movement. This initiative specifically names two sources of money that can be further explored: 1. Providing professional services in MediaWiki technologies, and 2. Leveraging the Wikimedia Brand (e.g. in printed shirts and other items).
- Providing professional and consultancy services concerning MediaWiki technologies.
- Creating merchandising and making use of the Wikimedia brand.
Apply for a Movement Strategy implementation grant to create a project that advances this initiative.
