Program areas at WMF

Our core functions include support for and the other wikimedia websites, which together are one of the world's most popular web properties, and the world's largest collaborative free knowledge project. The wikimedia foundation provides the servers and electricity needed to keep the websites running, along with dedicated technical resources to build, improve, and maintain the technical infrastructure of wikimedia projects. These ongoing engineering efforts and product improvements require research and design work, as well as legal support. All of this allows for the best experience for our readers and volunteer community, ensuring users continue to access, contribute to and grow the world's largest online free knowledge resource.

The wikimedia foundation grantmaking and program development department focuses on growing wikimedia in various regions around the world and expanding diversity within the contributor base. These programs and efforts directly support contributors through grants for projects, programs, and campaigns by individuals and organizations. Grantmaking and program development team also strives to further the missions of wikimedia, such as open access and education, through programs like our global education program, as well through worldwide program evaluation, research, and global communications. Because openness and inclusivity are key to the success of the wikimedia projects, grantmaking and program development aim to broaden the diversity of voices and expand the reach of our projects to diverse individuals and groups around the world.
