Ụzọ anyị maka ọdịnihu

For the second consecutive year, the Wikimedia Foundation is anchoring its annual plan in the Movement's strategy to advance equity. Our intention is to connect the Foundation's work even more deeply with the Movement Strategy Recommendations in order to make even deeper progress towards the 2030 Strategic Direction. We remain driven to do this through collaborative planning with others in the Movement who are also implementing the recommendations. This is made more actionable in deepening our regional focus so that the Foundation's support better meets the needs of varying communities in all regions of the world. Furthermore, the upcoming Movement Charter is expected to provide more clarity on roles, responsibilities, possibly through new collaborative structures like hubs and a Global Council. We intend to continue our collaboration with the charter process to advance equity in decision-making for our Movement.

Approach to annual planning:

  • Take an external perspective. Start with: what's happening in the world around us. Look outward. Identify the key External Trends impacting our work.
  • Focus on Product + Tech. Recenter support for communities and volunteers through our unique role in enabling product and technology at scale.
  • Regional approach. Continue to take a more regional approach to supporting global communities.

This year, the Foundation is recentering its plan around Product & Technology, emphasizing our unique role as a platform for people and communities collaborating on a massive scale. The bulk of this effort, called "Wiki Experiences," recognizes that volunteers are at the heart of the Wikimedian process of sensemaking and knowledge creation. Therefore, this year, we are prioritizing established editors (including those with extended rights, like admins, stewards, patrollers, and moderators of all kinds, also known as functionaries) over newcomers, to ensure that they have the right tools for the critical work they do every day to expand and improve quality content, as well as manage community processes. Managing the platform effectively also requires the Foundation to address large-scale infrastructure and data needs that may extend beyond the specific Wiki Experiences of the projects. This work is described below as "Signals & Data Services." And finally, in a category called "Future Audiences," we must accelerate innovations that engage diverse audiences as editors and contributors.

Trade-offs and choices

The financial model on which the Wikimedia Movement has relied for most of its historic growth (banner fundraising) is reaching some limits. New funding streams to complement this – including Wikimedia Enterprise and the Wikimedia Endowment – will take time to develop. They are unlikely to fund the same levels of growth in the coming few years as we have seen in banner fundraising over the last decade, especially given an uncertain global economic outlook.

In response to these trends, the Foundation slowed growth last year compared to the prior three years. We are now making internal budget cuts involving both non-personnel and personnel expenses to make sure we have a more sustainable trajectory in expenses for the coming few years. Despite these budget pressures, we will grow overall funding to Movement partners, including expanding grants to: take into account global inflationary costs, support newcomers to the Movement, and increase funding for conferences and Movement events. This plan involves more funding in all regions while prioritizing proportionally larger growth in underrepresented regions. To enable this growth for affiliates and newcomers, some grant programs (like the Research and Alliances funds) will need to be smaller. Furthermore, as we assess the Foundation's core capabilities, we recognize that there are activities where others in the Movement may be better placed to have meaningful impact and are exploring pragmatic ways to move in that direction in the year ahead.

To be more transparent and accountable, this annual plan includes detailed financial information, notably on the structure of the Foundation's budget, as well as how the Foundation's departments are organized, and global guidelines and compensation principles.


The Wikimedia Foundation has four main goals in 2023−2024. They are designed to align with the Wikimedia Movement's Strategic Direction and Movement Strategy Recommendations, and continue much of the work identified in last year's plan. They are:

In this mission together

In the sections that follow, you will find more specific details on the work of various teams at the Foundation in support of these four goals. After a brief history of planning at the Foundation, we look outward at what is changing around us – and ask what this means for Wikimedia and the Foundation's priorities. What else do we need to consider? Are we collectively heading in a direction that brings us closer to the Movement's 2030 vision? What does the world need from us now?

In refreshing the values of the Wikimedia Foundation, our staff has endorsed the principle of being in this mission together. We hope the content that follows provides you with a deeper understanding of how the work being done by the Foundation tries to deliver on that promise for us all.
