Question 8[edit]

"8. In your previous financial year, did your chapter provide grants to other individuals or entities? If so, how much (in $US)? "

Could you clarify whether this means non-Wikimedia individuals or entities, or a combination of both? E.g. WMUK has given grants to WMF, WMDE, WMFR, and funded projects run by Wikimedia individuals - do those count, or would it e.g. be like grants to the OpenStreetMap Foundation? Thanks.

Hi Mike. We're interested all non-WMF entities and individuals that WMUK has provided funds to. Examples include other Chapters, individuals from within the movement, and external organizations. --Divya (talk) 21:54, 11 May 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Many thanks for the clarification. :-) Mike Peel (talk) 22:13, 11 May 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Chapter Finances Survey results[edit]

Excellent questions. These answers will be helpful in defining the FDC process. I was wondering how the the answers will be collected. Will they be answered by individual chapters and available for viewing in that form, and then also tabulated together for a summary of the results?

Hi Sydney. Great question. You are exactly right - in addition to individual Chapter pages, we will summarize output into a table on Meta and will also use it to develop charts and insights for the Advisory Group meeting on June 9th. These materials will also be available to the community. Divya (talk) 22:12, 11 May 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Wikimedia Kenya[edit]

We did some projects last year after securing a grant from WMF but we hadn't become a chapter yet. Should that be under chapter expenses? stephenWanjau Talk to Me. Email Me. 16:28, 22 May 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Stephen - I would include those expenses in your total for last year. It will be very helpful for us because we're trying to get a sense of overall chapter needs (even though some of those expenses were incurred before you were officially a chapter). Thanks so much!
