About the Project and Event Grants Program

Project and Event Grants (PEG) support organizations, groups, and individuals to undertake innovative, mission-aligned projects that benefit the Wikimedia movement.

PEG funds projects that increase access to and quality of free knowledge around the world, including the following:

  1. Activities with proven effectiveness in reaching the Wikimedia movement's strategic goals of reach, participation, and quality
  2. Innovative new projects as experiments to reach our strategic goals
  3. Annual plans for Wikimedia organizations (without staff) focused on actively growing local free knowledge
  4. Activities and experiments that increase the diversity of our editing population and content base

The PEG program process is public and led by the voluntary Grant Advisory Committee (GAC). We accept grant submissions at any time and in any language.

We welcome your comments on open requests and reports.
