The Project Grants program funds Wikimedia community members - individuals, groups, or organizations contributing to Wikimedia projects such as Wikipedia or Commons - to organize projects that benefit the Wikimedia movement. Grants are awarded bianually and have a minimum budget of USD 2,000. For grants under USD 2,000, please see the Rapid Grants program.
Grants are generally awarded in four broad categories, but we welcome all ideas!
- Online organizing
- Offline outreach
Proposals should support the achievement of Wikimedia’s mission.
We recently surveyed the first two rounds of Project Grant applicants. You can see the report and next steps for program improvements here.
The schedule for the next Project Grants round has not yet been determined. Relevant announcements will made here and on the wikimedia-l mailing list.
