As an initiative of several philanthropists, the Friends of Wikimedia Belgium Fund was established, managed by the King Baudouin Foundation. The objective of the Fund is to support various projects of Wikimedia Belgium.

By making a donation to the Friends of Wikimedia Belgium Fund, you will be supporting projects whose general objective is to support Free Knowledge in Belgium. Wikimedia Belgium organises, among other things, heritage projects, "Writing for Wikipedia", "Wikipedia for foreigners", "Wikipedia for prisoners". It organizes, alone or in collaboration with other institutions, organizations, museums, libraries and archives, projects that promote Free Knowledge.

Specific objectives

Wikimedia Belgium is committed to promoting free access to and sharing of all knowledge, particularly at the regional, federal and European levels; contributing to social and cultural issues related to free data and free knowledge; encouraging consultation and responsible contribution to Wikimedia projects through presentations, books or other media. Its main purpose is to encourage the collection, organisation, enrichment, indexing, cataloguing and making available of free knowledge.

In doing so, it can work with other institutions, organizations, government, and the general public to raise awareness of the importance of free licensing to ensure that human knowledge, heritage, and related intangible elements remain available to mankind forever. This includes digitizing, describing and inventorying heritage through photography, audio and video and uploading it to Wikimedia Commons.

Management Committee

Within the King Baudouin Foundation, a Board Committee of the Fund is set up, consisting of the Founders, a representative of the Foundation and an independent third party who chairs the Board Committee.

The Fund's Board of Directors decides on the use of the Fund's resources. It approves the projects of the beneficiary Wikimedia Belgium NPO and fixes the amounts that the Fund will allocate to these projects. Wikimedia Belgium reports to the Fund on the use of the allocated funds.
