Work in progress[edit]

Earned income[edit]

I just made a comment on Recommendation 4 that applies here too. I support the idea as a sustainable way to do useful but non-core activities, but I wouldn't count on it as a way to raise funds that can be used for other activities. - Laurentius (talk) 21:16, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

Already implemented by some communities[edit]

This has been widely done by some affiliates and can be read in the Outreach website of Wikimedia. Nonetheless, once again, the recommendation is too short. Consulting services is a very sensitive topic and should be further explain to assess it is following the basic ethical principles. As a non-profit organisation, we should always provide this help to partnerships (according with the volunteer-driven community, capacity, and ability) and just use it as a revenue if the partnership has the economical means to pay for it -and if this income is going to be reinverted in expenses for GLAM projects.
