> Hello all,
> Hope this email finds you well. We are sending this message to select
> community mailing lists and all previous recipients of Wikimedia Foundation
> Rapid Grants.
> As you know the Rapid Grants Program
> <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:Project/Rapid>  has played an
> important role in helping our communities to grow. The number of grants we
> have given out grew by 30% between FY16 -17 to this fiscal year, and they
> grew by 55% when measured by the total amount disbursed. (See the spending
>  for reference.*)
> While communities have valued these flexible funding opportunities, on our
> part, it hasn’t been easy to measure and track their impact. We therefore
> will be implementing a number of changes in Fiscal Year 19/20, starting *August
> 1 2019*, to sharpen the focus and impact of rapid grants, whilst at the
> same time maintaining the quick and flexible funding options for community:
> 1) In the months specified below, we will prioritize support to *contests
> and campaigns* which have been an exciting source of growth in
> editorship, innovative participation and content generation by communities.
> These months will be solely dedicated to different contests and campaigns
> throughout the year:
> - *August*: only receiving proposals for *Wiki Loves Monuments*
> - *September*: only receiving proposals for *Awareness Grants*
> - *December*: only receiving proposals for *Wiki Loves Africa *
> - *January*: only receiving proposals for *Art + Feminism* (campaign)
> - *March*: only receiving proposals for *Wiki Loves Earth*
> 2) Outside the months specified above, proposals are welcomed in all
> other categories: edit-a-thons, contests, photowalks, general promotion
> campaigns, and video campaigns. For added flexibility, we will also
> consider proposals outside of these categories, such as software
> development. However, we will no longer be providing rapid grants for
> travel support, equipment purchase or meetups.
> 3) We will evaluate each batch of grants once a month and accept the best
> proposals in alignment with the Wikimedia Foundation’s medium-term goals.
> We will share the evaluation for the Rapid Grants Program that led us to
> sharpen the focus for the program once the evaluation is completed by
> September 30, 2019. In addition to these changes, we’ve also considered
> comments around Wikimedia Foundation Rapid Grants eligibility criteria and
> have clarified these criteria. Please take the time to re-familiarize
> yourselves with the Wikimedia Foundation Rapid Grants Guidelines and
> Criteria <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:Project/Rapid/Learn> 
> The Wikimedia Foundation’s Medium-term
>  plan goals are set out here for information.
> If you have any questions, please email us at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
> Best regards,
> *Please note that we have not yet put out the final FY 2018-19 numbers and
> we’re basing this calculation based on up to date internal numbers of 184
> grants and $270,194.
