Annual plan

Lila introduced the annual budget for the Wikimedia Foundation that she had discussed with the Audit Committee. Lila discussed the goals in the plan, and areas of growth and reinforcing core work in the plan. The Board will review the next annual plan in one year, and, if the need arises, the Executive Director may ask the Board to modify the annual plan in December, at the Executive Director's discretion.

Jan-Bart asked trustees to vote on the annual plan via written resolution, and the plan was unanimously approved following the meeting.

Funds Dissemination Committee Recommendation

Frieda and Maria introduced the recommendation from the Funds Dissemination Committee for 2014-15 Round 2. There is a pending complaint related to the FDC recommendation with the FDC Ombudsperson, so the Board noted that point in the resolution.

Jan-Bart asked trustees to vote on the FDC recommendation via written resolution, and the recommendation was unanimously approved following the meeting.

The meeting concluded at 12:30 PM.
