What is your goal?[edit]

Priority Goals identified by program leaders in 2015

Before running an event, it is important to clarify why you want to run the event. Wikimedia communities frequently use contributing events to achieve a number of different goals.

A 2015 study of Editathons, found that most organizers ran this type of event to meet end goals such as:

  • Build and engage a community
  • Increase awareness of Wikimedia projects
  • Increase the diversity of information covered on Wikimedia Projects
  • Help make contribution to the Wikimedia community easier
  • Increase diversity of participants in Wikimedia projects.
