This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Specifically: How does Community Wiki mode affect bounties? Bounties are not affected by community wiki mode. When you award a bounty to an answer marked community wiki, the reputation bonus will be awarded to the user who posted the original revision of the answer. – ben is uǝq backwards Sep 13 '12 at 21:28

Yes, it is possible to award a bounty to a community wiki post. In this case reputation bonus will be given to the original author of the post, regardless of the last editor.

What if the initiator of the answer is the same user who awarded the bounty? – Nemo Apr 11 '15 at 17:50
