This January we started our celebration of Wikipedia’s 20th birthday.
Many people joined us for a global virtual event and thousands others
joined many other events in every part of the world. 
THE CELEBRATION CONTINUES!
Many other events are still being planned throughout 2021. You can check
out the events and follow their updates on meta or plan an event in your
community if there isn’t one. If you are considering holding an event,
we wanted to let you know that Rapid Grants are still available to support
your planned events. For events happening in March, please make sure to
submit your grant application by 15 February and for events happening until
the end of July 2021, please make sure to submit your application no later
than 15 June 2021.
Applications for Rapid Grants are open from the 1st to the 15th of each
month and decisions are typically made by the end of that month. Rapid
Grants can fund common events in the movement such as edit-a-thons and
workshops in addition to small-scale experiments that don't need extensive
review to get started with a budget ranging between 500 to 2,000 USD.
You can find more information on Rapid Grants for Wikipedia 20 and the
application form on Meta.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
