The Simple APG grant (sAPG) is a simple yearly Chapter grant that is evaluated and granted by the WMF Grants team.

How it works[edit]

Small chapters register an sAPG grant; large chapters have a more complicated and larger APG grant.


The grant is necessary to fund the Affiliate programs, projects, activities, and administrative and service costs.


The sAPG process is a shared responsibility amongst the Chapter and the WMF Grants team.

It requires quite a lot of effort, both from the Foundation and the Chapter. It is spread amongst 3 consecutive calendar years (at least 4+12+1 months).
