Strategies Goals & Objectives What we do Budget 2021 Semiannual Report 2021

The budget outlines the income and expenses we expect for 2021 for the Wikimedia Deutschland e. V. and the non-profit Wikimedia Fördergesellschaft mbH and how they are composed. The economic plan 2021 was approved by the Supervisory Board on December 13, 2020. Questions or comments on the presentation of the economic plan can be submitted on the discussion page. More information about which goals Wikimedia Deutschland wants to achieve with the funds and what we plan to do in 2021 can be found on the pages Strategies, Goals & Objectives and What we do.

The volume of the economic plan 2021 increases by about 1% compared to the economic plan 2020. We are thus continuing our growth at a significantly slower pace under the difficult pandemic conditions. Increased revenues from donations and membership fees compensate for lower revenues from project funding, the main factor being the cancellation of the Wikimedia Summit 2021. In terms of expenses, the focus of growth is on the technology field of activity. We see slight increases in the field of volunteers, in the costs for general public relations and advertising costs and the transfer of funds to the Wikimedia Foundation. Expenses for the field of action "Conditions for Free Knowledge" will decrease slightly and expenses for administrative costs will decrease noticeably.
