The mission statement of the Wikimedia Foundation describes our current activities and purpose, the scope of our projects, and our core values. It stands in contrast to the vision statement. Our mission statement, an elaboration of the short version in the Articles of Incorporation and approved by a board resolution in April 2007, is:

Is é an misean atá ag an Wikimedia Foundation daoine ar fud an domhain a chumhachtú agus a fhostú ábhar oideachasúil a bhailiú agus a fhorbairt faoi cheadúnas saor in aisce nó sa bhfearann poiblí, agus é a scaipeadh go héifeachtach agus ar fud an domhain.

In collaboration with a network of chapters, the Wikimedia Foundation provides the essential infrastructure and an organizational framework for the support and development of multilingual wiki projects and other endeavors which serve this mission. The Foundation will make and keep useful information from its projects available on the Internet free of charge, in perpetuity.

Proposals to change the phrasing of the statement should be made at Mission/Unstable and proposals will be reviewed at least annually.
