Resolutions Setting Working Capital Reserve Target Feedback?
This resolution was approved on June 23, 2022.

Whereas, the Wikimedia Foundation maintains reserve funds that it can draw upon if needed in the event of sudden or unexpected cost increases or loss of revenue; and

Whereas, the Audit Committee has reviewed the approaches other non-profit organizations take to setting a target working capital ratio;

Now, therefore, it is:

RESOLVED, that the Foundation shall target an amount of up to 18 months of expenses for its working capital reserve;

RESOLVED, that the working capital reserve ratio should not fall below a 12-month baseline;

RESOLVED, that the Audit Committee shall review the Foundation's working capital reserve ratio at least once per year; and

RESOLVED, that the Board shall review the reserve ratio and target at least once every three years.
