Omg, I totally missed this thread when it started originally.
As Wikimedia Deutschland has an extensive history in individual grantmaking
and is currently running more than a dozen programs, please allow me to add
a link to our overview-page in the German Wikipedia:
(German only, sorry,
but Google Translate should do it)
Sorry for being so utterly late, but I hope this link is still of use? In
case you need some more explanations in detail, please feel free to consult
me here or offlist.

*Epic thread unearthing!*
Thanks to everybody who added more information - Jan, Itzik, Nicolas,
Christoph, Siko & Jessie.
Since apparently there was no Meta page for that(tm) (yet!) I went ahead
The relevant Meta page is https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants
It was written mainly with information from the Wikimania 2011 session
pad, so it may be slightly outdated. Can you please merge yours in
Nemo - I have no idea why we are moving to ElasticSearch: *you* should be
implemented as the search backend for Meta - and MediaWiki.org
while we are at it ;-þ
The table is now merged in https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants
Please fix any oversight I may have made in the process, and add any
(It is my understanding that grantmaking programs will be a focus of the
next Wikimedia Conference - I look forward more conversation happening on
Wikimedia-l mailing list
