Hi everyone,

The Wikimedia Foundation Individual Engagement Grants (IEG) program is
accepting proposals from March 14th to April 12th for new ideas to improve
Wikimedia projects. <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IEG>  Funds are
available (up to $30,000 USD) to support individuals or teams of up to four
people to implement promising ideas, whether focused on building a new tool
or gadget, organizing a better process on your wiki, researching an
important issue, or providing other support for community-building.  Ideas
from the current Inspire Campaign on content curation and review are very
welcome. <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IdeaLab/Inspire>

Do you have have a good idea, but would like some feedback before
applying?  Put it into the IdeaLab, where volunteers and staff can give you
advice and guidance on how to bring it to life. <
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IdeaLab>  Once your idea is ready,
it can be easily migrated into a grant request.

Community Organizer (and former IEG recipient) Chris Schilling and I will
also be hosting Hangouts at least weekly for real-time discussions about
the Inspire Campaign and the IEG Open Call to answer questions and help you
make your proposal better.  Hangouts are already underway - with the next
two scheduled for March 15th and 22nd.  <

We are excited to see your grant ideas that will support our community and
make an impact on the future of Wikimedia projects.  Put your idea into
motion, and submit your proposal between March 14 and April 12! <

Please feel free to get in touch with me ([hidden email]) with
questions about getting started with your idea.

Warm regards,

Marti
