PHILANTHROPIC GRANTS AT THE WIKIMEDIA FOUNDATION
Wikimedia is the world’s fifth most popular digital platform, used in everything from secondary education to advanced computational research. While Wikipedia is the largest and best-known of the Wikimedia projects, it is only one part of our work. Wikimedia is: Nearly 300 languages; Written by 200,000 monthly contributors; Visited around 6,000 times each second by more than one billion devices every month.
One of the many roles of the Wikimedia Foundation is that of a philanthropic funder (or “grantmaker”). This role is carried out by the Community Resources team, whose purpose is to make grants and offer other support to mission-aligned projects and organizations around the world. Annually, this team distributes ~$8M USD via several participatory grantmaking programs, which support a wide variety of ideas and projects: outreach, experimentation, conferences, research, software development, as well as general operating support grants.
In 2017, the Wikimedia movement adopted a new strategic direction for 2030. In order to achieve these 2030 goals, our movement is engaging in a movement-wide conversation about the current system of resource allocation. Given that grantmaking is one such system of resource allocation, the Community Resources team is interested in understanding how other philanthropic funders structure their programs to enable their goals, and how our current structure and programs compare to the larger sector.
Based in our historic setting and working in partnership with other organizations in the region, the Rehoboth Art League leads in sponsoring art exhibitions, education and other programs that inspire community members to embrace the lifelong value of art.
The Rehoboth Art League was formed in 1938 in Henlopen Acres, Delaware, as a place where artists could teach, gather, and exhibit their work. Property owners Louise Corkran and Colonel Wilbur Corkran generously donated their property to provide a home to this organization, and our organization has gone on to host such artistic legends as Jack Lewis, Howard Schroeder, Orville Peets, and Mary Mullineux. We now boast more than 1,000 members who live across the county, offer more than 150 classes each year, annually hold more than 20 solo and group exhibitions of artwork, and produce special events such as our Salons, the Annual Cottage Tour, and our Outdoor Fine Art Show—all of which brings close to 15,000 people to our wooded, 3.5+ acre campus each year. And off campus, we reach underserved communities across Southern Delaware with exhibitions and arts education opportunities to further expand our reach.
The Exhibitions Director is responsible for artistic programs in fulfillment of the mission of the Rehoboth Art League, including exhibitions, artist support, collections, and other artistic endeavors. This position oversees all gallery operations at the League’s historic campus, any pop up galleries around the region, and all artwork loan activities.
