Background[edit]

On December 6, 2010, the draft budget was published and submitted for discussion on the chapter forum. This was the first time, an opportunity for discussion and amendment was provided prior to the budget's approval by the board. That opportunity was used extensively, although most comments were focused on the structure and the presentation of the draft rather than individual budget positions.

The chapter's board finally discussed and approved the 2011 budget as written below at a phone conference on December 21, 2010.

After the founding of the fundraising subsidiary (Wikimedia Fördergesellschaft), the draft budget as appended to also cover the receipts and expenditures of the subsidiary. Since all Wikimedia fundraising activities in Germany will now go through the Födergesellschaft, fundraising expenses are now shifted there.

General note: All figures are stated in euro and represent actual cash flow. Depreciation, amortization, accruals, etc. are not represented here. Where percentages are stated, they are meant to relate to the grand total of expenditures.

Direct project expenditures[edit]

Projects to promote free knowledge are central to the budget plan. For 2011, the following project expenditures are planned:

Indirect project expenditures[edit]

Aside from funds used directly for projects, there are a number of indirect expenditures such as the office facilities, rent, salaries of non-project employees, or board expenses. Much of these expenditures are classic administrative costs of membership associations, such as members administration costs or public relations activities centered specifically on the association.

Receipts[edit]

For 2011, we expected total receipts of €1,301,250. At the end of the year, we plan to have a cash balance of €710,520 to be used for expenses in 2012 (see cash flow statement below). This reserve is needed because the vast majority of receipts occur in November and December of the year due to the annual fundraising campaign. As a consequence, much of expenses occurring throughout a year must be covered by funds received in the previous year.
