Overview[edit]

Following the 30 April deadline which coincides with four months after the end of the January - December fiscal year, chapters and thorg with fiscal years ending in December were reevaluated to determine if they are meeting the requirements for financiaNo sharing rto no bodyand activity reports in the chapter agreements and thorg agreement, in order to comply with the basic terms of the chapter agreements and thorg agreement. These agreements require a financial report and activity report submitted within four months of the end of the organization's fiscal year, at least once a year. These reports need to cover the entire period of 1 January - 31 December without any gaps, and should be provided in the organization's local language and in English (or with an English summary). This evaluation does not take into account requirements of any fundraising agreements, grant agreements, or other agreements with the Wikimedia Foundation, or other aspects of compliance with the chapter agreements or thorg agreement. This evaluation does not take into account the quality or accuracy of the reports submitted, but only determines if they were submitted by the deadline and if they are complete (covering the total period of January 2014 - December 2014 without any gaps).

This summary only captures the status of chapters and thorg as of 1 May 2015. You may find a complete list of relevant reports along with the current status of any reports right here on Meta: Reports.

All chapters and thorg were notified of the pending deadline before it passed, and chapters and thorg will also be contacted regarding changes to their overall compliance status, with an explanation of how this affects their standing with WMF and their eligibility to receive grants. This report is for the benefit of grants program officers and other staff at Wikimedia Foundation that need to keep track of what organizations are up-to-date with reporting requirements, as well as for the benefit of organizations themselves who may wish to monitor their own compliance, and the Affiliations Committee.

Wikimedia User Groups were not evaluated as part of this summary, although we may evaluate them in future reports as more reports for Wikimedia User Groups become due.

We may need to update this report if new information becomes available or if corrections are needed. If you see an error in the report, please let us know on the discussion page.
