This strategy is well in hand. We have been building a broader fundraising, donor and member strategy for reporting to the board in November. Much of this work can now be brought forward.

Great minds...

That's a good positive way to look at this.

Exploring alternative sources of funding is always a good idea; and with the yearly fundraiser being so successful it always risk taking a backseat...

The Foundation have got the annual event fairly well nailed - this could be an interesting way to explore other options.

Ok, the decision has been made and Wikimedia UK will not be taking part in the annual fundraiser. It's ridiculous management speak, but let's view this as an opportunity.

Wikimedia UK now has a fundraiser on staff who will unexpectedly have a lot spare time. This is an excellent opportunity to start broadening the charity's revenue sources. Perhaps Katherine can produce an options paper?
