This resolution was approved on June 1, 2021.

RESOLVED, that the Board of Trustees hereby approves management's proposed annual plan for the 2021-­22 fiscal year, which includes:

  • US$147 million of revenues and US$147 million of expenses for the foundation, excluding Wikimedia Enterprise
  • US$10.2 million in contractual revenue and approximately US$3.6 million in expense for Wikimedia Enterprise with an option of US$1.4 million in increased operating expenses to grow the WM Enterprise business
  • At least US$10 million in donations raised for the Wikimedia Endowment

RESOLVED, that the Board authorizes the Audit Committee to approve minor adjustments to the 2021-2022 fiscal year budget in response to Board input during June 2021, as long as these adjustments do not result in a change in excess of 3% of the proposed 2021-2022 fiscal year budget and will not exceed the revenue target; and

RESOLVED, that during the fiscal year, if management anticipates the change in reserves will differ materially from the plan, the Board directs management to consult the Chair of the Audit Committee promptly.
