Funder that financially supports open source projects. Their database has close to 2000 grants at this moment. --Egon Willighagen (talk) 03:45, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

I am on the Scholia team which received funding for this organization to develop the WikiCite project including an exploration of the extent to which we can model grants here.

  • While I support this property, I note that Daniel Mietchen (talkcontribslogs) is currently enquirying about the license of the Sloan data. There is also the further questions of (continuous) project vs. one-time grant, e.g., NumFocus is an organization, while I suppose the suggested identifier is for one-time grants. The ontology around organization/continuous project and one-time grant is still not quite resolved in Wikidata, if I understand correctly. People may want to correct me here. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 18:45, 27 May 2019 (UTC)
Yep. Will leave a note here when I hear back. --Daniel Mietchen (talk) 00:11, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
I got some initial response but this does not clarify whether creating this Wikidata property is the way to go forward. More discussion to follow — will come back here when there is anything sharable. --Daniel Mietchen (talk) 16:20, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
