This is a summary of financial information from the different organizations across the Wikimedia movement. There are of course many complications around reporting standards, and breakdowns, but let's do our best to produce a set of comparable numbers using roughly the same methodology. Please show figures in thousands, in the primary currency used for financial reports and planning.
