We don't have exact quotes yet, the amounts below are estimates.
- acquiring the wikimedia.hu domain (depending on settlement or legal fees): $100 - $1000
- brochures and other printed material: ~ $500
- promotional items: ~ $500
- online donation system: ~ $200
- Wikipedia library: ~$150
- membership cards: ~ $150
- legal aid, accounting advice: ~ $100
- domain fees: ~ $100
We would like to build up our organisational capabilities so that we can focus on mission driven programs. In the scope of this grant we would like to purchase and obtain domain names, print brochures, business/membership cards, create promotional items and set up an online donation system. We would also like to purchase and create a basic "Wikipedia library" containing the basic books (not readily available in Hungary) about Wikipedia and making them available to those interested. In addition, we have a special tax exempt status as an association of public utility, to take full advantage of the benefits of this and to understand any possible government policy changes (as part of an economy recovery plan) we would like to hire appropriate legal and accounting aid.
The goal of this project is to build up an organisational support to empower our volunteers to work freely on mission driven programs, especially outreach and wikieducation.
We would like Mike Godwin's help in acquiring the wikimedia.hu domain; we have already started discussing this issue with him in the Berlin Wikimedia conference.
