Hi all,
Im pleased to announce the launch of a new grantmaking program at the Wikimedia Foundation: Individual Engagement Grants. These grants will support Wikimedians as individuals or small teams to complete projects that benefit the Wikimedia movement, lead to online impact, and serve the mission, community, and strategic priorities. This new program is intended to complement WMFs other grantmaking programs as well as the grants that chapters and affiliate organizations provide.

The first round of proposals will be accepted from now until 15 February 2013. Were also seeking committee members to help select the first round of grantees. Please help spread the word to other lists!

To get involved, share your thoughts, submit a proposal, or join the committee:
