Thank you for joining us at WikiCredCon (aka, WikiConference North America 2019).
We have around $100,000 to give out to projects at the intersection of Wikipedia and credibility, especially if presented or related to WikiConference North America 2019. Thanks to Craig Newmark, Facebook and Microsoft for their generous support for these community grants.
Grants will range from $250 to slightly more than $10,000. The larger the grant ask, the more it has to squarely hit the intersection of Wikipedia and credibility, while having the potential to scale. If your ultimate ambition is greater than that amount, then ideally we can tee you up for additional funding by demonstrating success as a pilot. We want to share our funding pot among relevant projects, so please let us know what you would do if you got less than the original ask.
Note, your proposals are public on wikiconference.org. We will likely have follow-up questions for promising projects.
Please be patient as this is our first time doing this, and we are trying to make this as efficient and lightweight as possible while still being rigorous in the Wiki way.
In most cases, the “grant” likely will be held by the Wikicred fund, but you will be able to invoice against it for labor, equipment costs, travel, etc. Ideally, we can pay the invoice directly or reimburse you by PayPal.
