  • WMF’s Global Advocacy Support of Wikimedia Deutschland (July 1, 2022): The Wikimedia Foundation has approved supporting Wikimedia Deutschland (WMDE) by funding of $300,000 US$ to be made in July 2022. This financing is to support Wikimedia affiliates’ European policy advocacy capacity for up to two years. This support will be used to fund one additional staff position and related programmatic and operational costs. The money comes from funds the Foundation had initially earmarked for its own public policy staff. It will enable increased policy advocacy in alignment between the Wikimedia Foundation and Wikimedia affiliates in Europe. Full details can be found in the PDF.
