    Notes
    • Budget approved at the 1 October 2005 budget meeting. The detailed subpages at meta:Wikimedia budget/2005/Q4 are not official yet. Only $160,000 was available at the start of the quarter, creating a budget shortfall of $161,200. A fund drive starting on 1 December was scheduled at the meeting as well. --Daniel Mayer 18:18, 1 October 2005 (UTC)
    • As of 1-Oct-2005 we have $156,000 in SunTrust and $22,000 in PayPal. But $18,000 of that is reserve money that should not be spent. --Daniel Mayer 14:06, 1 October 2005 (UTC)

    Notes
    • Q1 and Q2 were effectively treated as a single fiscal unit and therefore make most sense when viewed together. See the mid year report at Finance report for that analysis. --Daniel Mayer 03:06, 16 December 2005 (UTC)
    • Q2 budget was retroactively approved at the 14 Aug 2005 board meeting. --Daniel Mayer 01:30, 17 August 2005 (UTC)
    • There was no real quarter 2 budget. All the numbers are exactly the same from the Q1 budget except for the hardware item. The Q2 number was $40,000 less due to the fact that the Q1 hardware budget was inflated by that amount due to a grant. --Daniel Mayer 02:29, 23 July 2005 (UTC)

    Notes
    • We were way under budget for this quarter. This was mostly due to delayed hardware purchases and delayed hosting payments. In fact, both quarters were effectively treated as a single fiscal unit and therefore make most sense when viewed together. See the mid year report at Finance report for that analysis.
    • A grant of $40,000 is from the Lounsbery Foundation. It is part of the 'Other donations' income item.
    • Fund drive scheduled to start Friday 18 February 2005 and last for 3 weeks.
