The Wikimedia Foundation's grantmaking programs offer a range of options for supporting different kinds of projects. It funds projects for individual contributors, teams, user groups, chapters, and other organizations working on building community and growing content on Wikimedia projects and sites as well as related open knowledge projects under-resourced and emerging regions, languages and communities, particularly in the Global South. In addition to financial support, the grantmaking team provides grantees with mentorship, opportunities and tools to promote their programs and projects, tell their stories and share their knowledge. Types of grants include Travel and Participation Support, Individual Engagement Grants, Project and Event Grants, and Annual Plan Grants. See this page to learn more and get started.
