It seems to me that Casey, you are handling a lot of the fundraising (to 
the point of talking frequently of "we").

So, I have a suggestion. When the Foundation proposed to chapters to be 
part of the fundraiser, it asked us a list of specifications to respect 
and mandatory reporting. Amongst the requirements, each chapter had to 
give the name of a contact person. So, there should be half a dozen 
contact people now. But it does not seem that the information is 
circulating very well between all parties involved.

What about setting up a mailing list for the duration of the fundraiser, 
where all contact people and WMF could communicate on the issue of the 
fundraiser ? How do you feel about that ?
