Wikimedia affiliates are the chapters, and regional or thematic user groups of the Wikimedia Foundation.

They are formally supporting the user community on a national, regional, or thematic level, and have a direct link with the Foundation (funding, representation, projects, reporting) via the Affiliations Committee.

Affiliates can associate with each other on regional, thematic, or linguistic level (hubs) to become a more efficient use of resources (people, budget, documentation, training, support).


  • Affiliates sign an agreement with the Foundation in order to have the right to use e.g. the Wikimedia logos
  • Prepare an (s)APG grant
  • (half) Yearly reporting
  • Perform activities
