Info The election ended 22 June 2013. No more votes will be accepted.

The results were announced on 24 June 2013.


The 2013 elections to the Funds Dissemination Committee will be held from June 8st through June 22th 2013. Members of the Wikimedia community have the opportunity to elect two candidates to a two-year term which will expire in 2015. The purpose of the FDC process is to make allocations to FDC-eligible Wikimedia entities, based on an assessment of the extent to which requested funding will enable those entities to have an impact on realizing the mission goals of the Wikimedia movement.




From the FDC portal

FDC members will be expected to dedicate considerable time, focus, and effort, including:

  • In-person attendance at FDC meetings (two to three meetings expected per year);
  • Reading and evaluating proposals during the two proposal rounds per year (March and October);
  • Ongoing monitoring and participation in FDC discussions and activities within the community; and
  • Sporadically intense email and IRC communication with FDC staff and other FDC members.

To be eligible for the FDC, candidates:

  • Must be over 21 years old and over the age of majority in their home country;
  • Must be able to work effectively in English (although full fluency is not required);
  • Must present to WMF appropriate personal identification, a copy of which will be maintained by WMF for record-keeping;
  • Have sufficient time and dedication to commit to this process and availability to attend in-person meetings, as needed;
  • Have a track record of constructive engagement in community discussions and an orientation toward collaborative problem solving; and
  • Be able to set aside any conflicts of interest and work towards the mission goals of the Wikimedia movement without considering individual or organizational interests.

Staff / board members of entities requesting funds from the FDC may serve on the FDC; however, they must recuse themselves from deliberations pertaining to their entity's application.

Through careful selection of candidates through both the Board-appointment and community election processes, the FDC membership (as a whole) should have the following skills and attributes:

  • Experience directing or evaluating programs;
  • Grant-making expertise (either as a grantee or grantor of funds);
  • Exposure to, understanding of, and personal credibility in the Wikimedia movement (that is, experience in programs, chapters, or administrative roles within the Wikimedia movement); and
  • Gender, geographic and linguistic diversity.

FDC members will be expected to adhere to articulated conflict of interest provisions that will reduce their risk of being unduly influenced.


The eligibility requirements for candidates are the same as for voters (see voter requirements) with the following additional requirements:

  • You must not have been convicted of a serious crime or any crime involving dishonesty or deception; and
  • You must not have been removed from a position at a non-profit organization or other company because of mismanagement or misconduct; and

  • You must be over 21 years old and over the age of majority in your home country; and
