Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

Come learn about grants available from WMF through the experience of some grantees themselves!

The Wikimedia Foundation currently offers 4 different kinds of grants to support a diverse range of individuals, groups, and organizations in the Wikimedia movement:

This panel will give a taste of WMF's funding offerings by showcasing several recent grantees. Through a moderated discussion, we'll learn more about these grantees' work and discuss challenges and successes with supporting a diverse range of people, projects, and initiatives in our community.


Most of the time will be open for discussion with panelists and the audience - we look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas about grantmaking in this session too!
