This page is the English version of Wikimedia Deutschland's preliminary Plan and Budget 2020. It includes the preliminary goals and objectives 2020 and the preliminary budget 2020, which will be submitted to our Supervisory Board for approval on December 7, 2019.

Planning 2020 Goals & Objectives 2020 Budget 2020

For the budget 2020, the volume increases by 15.5 % compared to the updated budget 2019. On the revenue side, this growth is due to increased donations and membership fees of around 12%. Funding is increasing significantly by around 32%, in particular due to the considerably higher volume of funding for Wikidata provided by the Wikimedia Foundation. In terms of expenditures, the focus of growth is on the programmatic areas, all of which are growing by more than 20%, spearheaded by the field of action Technology and Wikidata with planned growth of around 34%. The expenditures for public relations and advertising will also increase noticeably by 25 % after years of very low growth until 2018 due to necessary investments. Administrative expenses will only grow in line with overall growth despite planned IT investments in this area as well.

This shows how much revenue from donations have not yet been used, how much revenue from donations has been received from which source and how much revenue from donations has been used.
