The WMF Micro-Grants Program is open exclusively to all WMF Alumni in good standing. Only applications from WMF Alumni will be reviewed and funded.
While we do not expect grantees to pay back any of the funds received from the WMF Micro-Grants Program, we do need and require the submission of reports to WMF on activities undertaken and funds spent.
The WMF Micro-Grants Program will provide a one-time grant of $100 to $1000 USD to help start, or significantly expand, a business, community-based organization (CBO), non-governmental organization (NGO), community service project or event.
More in-depth reporting on the success of the Micro-Grants Program can be found under Awardees.
