Call for Projects 2020
English Deutsch Français Italiano


This page is dedicated to receive project submissions from members of the WMCH community to help build the association's Annual Plan 2019.

Please note that in order for the project/programme to be eligible, it will have to fit one of the following directions: Projects with GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums), Educational projects and Projects for the community (support, bridge, train).

We give more importance to projects/programmes tackling diversity or technology/know-how or communication into account.

If you have a Wikimedia project that you wish to implement and that would possibly fit into the Association’s annual plan for 2019, please submit a proposal.

Upon receipt of the proposals, we (staff and Board) will select those initiatives that fit most closely into WMCH's plans. Submissions in your mother tongue are of course very welcome (German, English, Italian, French).

The deadline for your submissions is set for September 1st, 2019, COB. Please note that we will not be able to give you any feedback before the following month.

Thank you for your understanding

Eligibility criteria[edit]

  • Individuals, groups, and organizations may apply.


You are eligible if you fill the following criteria:
  • active in a Wikimedia project in one of the Swiss languages (German, French, Italian or Romansh) and exceptionally also in English;
  • you are living in Switzerland or in a country without a Wikimedia chapter or in a country where the national chapter does not receive funding from Wikimedia Foundation.
Furthermore members of Wikimedia CH (>6 months membership) are also eligible even if they don't have three previous criteria.


  • Funds are typically for direct expenses and not used to pay for people’s time. We support volunteer participation. Please note that participation that is tied to paid work is not eligible for funding.
  • Grantees must adhere to the Respectful behavior space expectations.
  • By submitting a request for a project, you and any potential external partners have understood the partnership terms under which WMCH operates. Please consult those Terms and Conditions here.
  • You must agree to the reporting requirements, be willing to sign a grant agreement and provide Wikimedia CH with information needed to process your funding.
