Grants:APG/Proposals/2016-2017 round 2/Wikimédia France/Letter of intent
Purpose of this document
This document is the first critical step of the funds application process. Funds-seeking entities will fill out the top of this document a few months ahead of the application deadline (8 June for Round 1 and 8 November for Round 2) to indicate their interest in applying for funds in the upcoming round. WMF staff will use the checklist on the bottom half of this document to ensure that applicants are eligible to apply for FDC funds. Entities are responsible for meeting eligibility criteria before applying for FDC funds.
It is important to note that entities submitting letters of intent are now asked to include a dollar figure (or a figure in local currency). Entities will not be tied to these notional figures. The initial request amount will be used internally for FDC planning purposes.

To Whom It May Concern:
I am authorized by the board of trustees of Wikimédia France to inform you that Wikimédia France intends to seek funding from the Funds Dissemination Committee for support of specified programs or activities relating to our organization.
I recognize that seeking funds from the FDC is contingent upon compliance with the eligibility requirements outlined in the checklist below, and that to the best of my knowledge my organization is eligible or is on a plan to be eligible based on these criteria.
If requested, I will provide the Foundation with the details of the governing board members, senior management and key employees associated with my organization to be screened for compliance with US law. If requested, for each individual, I will provide full name in English, in the language of origin, any other names used, country of residence, and place and date of birth.
We currently plan to request funds in Round 2. At that time, we will submit our annual plan with full financials. We anticipate that our funding request may be approximately 800,000.00 € (EUR).
