(Apologies for cross posting.) 

The Community Resources team is now recruiting committee members to support the launch of two new grants programs [1]. We are especially interested in recruiting folks with expertise in the programs that we fund, including photography competitions like WLE and WLM.

The Project Grants Committee will review and advise on projects that promote new experiments and sustain ideas that work.

The Conference Support Committee will review and advise on large conferences and events.

Why should you serve on a grants committee?

  • Make a big difference by supporting applicants and grantees that are doing projects to improve content and increase participation across the Wikimedia movement.

  • Build yours skills and experience by participating in our innovative participatory grantmaking programs.

  • Interact with volunteers from all over the world.

Do you know somebody who you think would be perfect for this role?

  • We love referrals and want to build diverse committees!  Please encourage them to join.
