All you wanted to know about grants, and didn't know who to ask...

WMF is hosting a grantmaking booth at Wikimania - from August 9 to August 11 - to discuss our grantmaking with whomever's interested in learning more about it. Staff members will include the Grantmaking department (Anasuya Sengupta, Asaf Bartov, Siko Bouterse, Jessie Wild, Katy Love, Winifred Olliff, Jonathan Morgan) and our colleagues (Jaime Anstee from the Program Evaluation and Design team). Committee members from the Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC), Grants Advisory Committee (GAC) and the Individual Engagement Grants Committee (IEGC) will also be at the booth. We hope you will all consider signing up below to let everyone know when you'll be available.
