A discussion page for issues related to the FDC

Purpose[edit]

We would like to use this page to gather input as we develop the charter and processes for the Funds Dissemination Committee.

We seek to engage with a wide range of representatives from the Wikimedia community through this process.

If you would like to share your thoughts, feel free to do so on the talk page. If you are interested in speaking to us in more detail, reach out and we can set up a phone interview.
