Revenues[edit]

Below only the fiscal incomes are listed, the non-fiscal donations (like reduced fees, free room/equipment usage, etc.) were not priced.

Membership fees showing when the payment was received, what is not necessarily the year it was paid for.

Where the exact amount was not recoverable, the table rounds to thousands resulting in minor discrepancies.

"1%" means tax donations (Every year, 1% of the income tax from last year can be donated to civil organizations in Hungary)

1: grants received in 2009 and 2010 were used in the same year. From 2011 onwards, all grants were awarded for the next year
x: WM HU could keep 50% of the donations as per the payment processing agreement with WMF
y: 10,5M HUF was granted but only 10,04 transferred, the reason needs to be investigated as of june 21, 2014
z: 14,85M HUF was granted, but only ~10,18M was transferred after deducting the leftover from last year

WMF grants (any)[edit]

Where US dollars are shown, the grant was awarded in US dollars. They were put in brackets to keep HUF in first place. Exchange rates to HUF are usually from the proposals themselves.

2013 30 5 16 4 1 (WLM) 4 (evaluation workshop hosting, 2 QR-projects, "night of the civilians")

Note, varying definitions of "project" or "event" can vary the numbers greatly. In general the table above collects executed projects only. If there was a meetup (for example an awards ceremony) in relation to a project (for example an article writing contest) as the two events were related, they counted as 1 in the table above.

WM HU has only once cancelled a project, the WLM in 2012 (not listed above) as the government completely restructured this field making it impossible to reach an agreement with them on time. Our previous agreement did not allow us to reuse the data they shared with us in 2011. We could however renew our contract in 2013 under better than ever conditions.

In 2013 the owner of the project put on hold the József Bokros memorial award (also not listed above), as the agreement offered by the university we seeked to cooperate with was not acceptable for us and any further negotiations were cut short by them.

Note the "lectures" vary from single presentations to ongoing multi-year seminars. They were all counted as 1 project/each and only in the year when they were started, regardless if it is a continous (or repetitive per semester) or not. The same applies for all other continous projects.

Also notice, the numbers above are not weighted; a single meetup is equally counted as 1 as the far more complex WLM (which itself had multiple side projects and side effects, like the publication of the state owned monuments' database under a free licence) or the two QR projects from 2013
