Wikimédia Magyarország/2014 Programme Plan

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki


This page presents Wikimedia Hungary's programme plan and associated budget for the year 2014. This plan only includes programmes that specifically require funding. Further programmes may be carried out based on the initiative of our members, utilizing our existing reserves, IT infrastructure, office, and the support of our staff member.

The plan has been discussed and approved by our general assembly at 26th April 2014.


The total budget is distributed amongst the various strategic objectives as shown below.

All amounts are in Hungarian forints, amounts in US dollars are only for informational purposes. 1USD = 226 HUF / 1 HUF = 0,00442 USD

Type total budgeted proportion
x 0 0 0 x
Programs 3 150 000 ($13 923) 35%
Supporting other like-minded orgs 100 000 ($442) 1%
Administration 5 350 000 ($23 647) 59,5%
Other (reserves) 400 000 ($1768) 4,5%
Total 9 000 000 ($39 780) 100%

Our total expected spending for the fiscal (and calendar) year of 2014 is somewhere between 7-7.5 million HUF (~30-33 000 USD), or ~80% of the budget. Compared to 2012, we spent 11,5% more in 2013, while our programmatic activities grew from 22 to 30 or by ~36% (30/31 were executed, one suspended but could have been executed under redesigned conditions). Note that a simple editorial meetup was counted as 1 executed program, just like Wiki Loves Monuments or other, more complex programs.

A lower level of expansion is expected for 2014.

The average overplanning is 15% compared to the expected spending for the year. An additional 5% was added to the plan as a "general reserve" (named "other costs") to ensure our financial security.

Note that according to our (rough) estimates, in 2013 we received around 1,5 million forints for programmatic activities in non-financial donations, like special offers, reduced fares and other offers. We are looking forward to receive roughly the same amount this year as well.
