|IMPORTANT NOTICE: We have updated our guidelines regarding organizing in-person events with Wikimedia Foundation grant funding.
Our new COVID-19 Risk Assessment protocol for in-person gatherings is designed to be sensitive to the constantly changing circumstances around this pandemic, and allow potential grantees and community members to assess their own ability to safely host events and activities.
If you are planning an in-person event plan to request funding, please follow the steps described in these guidelines before submitting a grant proposal. For current grants already in progress, please contact your program officer if you would like to include or change your activities to include in-person activities.
ikipedia and its sister projects are supported by thousands of volunteers all over the world. Each year we offer more than two hundred grants to individuals, groups, and organizations working toward the Wikimedia Mission. To do so, we rely on committees of Wikimedia volunteers to help award over 9 million US dollars in grants. We invite you to learn more about our grants programs, recently funded grants, and our approach to participatory grantmaking
