As of today there is a total of $3,075.41 in the Cascadia Wikimedians bank
I am still working through the accounting for our WMF grant funding. I have
a draft report here:
Of the $6765.81, it appears that we spent $4419.79. Any remaining funds
from the grant, estimated at $2346.02, will be returned to WMF.
If we take the funds in the bank, $3,075.41, and subtract the amount
estimated to be returned to WMF, $2346.02, that leaves us $729.39 that we
will retain for our use. That $729.39 amount is higher than I anticipated,
and I will be doing further work to verify the correct amount.
WMF will look at our receipts for our expenses before accepting our grant
I will be at the meeting this afternoon and am available for questions,
both at the meeting and online. At this point my work focuses on reporting
for past expenses, and I believe that Brian and Peaceray are developing a
budget for next year.
We're organizing Wikipedia Day in NYC on January 15 at the Ace Hotel.
And there are discussions to hold a simultaneous London edition at the Ace
Hotel there as well.
I've been in touch with the Ace, are there is a possibility they may be
able to host in Seattle or Portland as well.
The Portland space is a rather bigger venue (and could be an opportunity
for new outreach there), but Seattle is probably closer to your center of
gravity. Either might be possible.
Hoping this can be a topic of discussion at the upcoming Cascadia annual
