As many of you may know, the Wikimedia Foundation is working with The Bridgespan Group to develop a process for allocating movement funds to programs and other projects. As a part of this, the Board of Trustees resolved to create a Funds Dissemination Committee to make recommendations around how funds should be divided and allocated (see the resolution here [1]). Over the next months, we will be developing the FDC structure and clear processes around funds dissemination. As we do this, we invite you to share your thoughts on how this process can best support the movement's mission in a fair and transparent way.

We are hosting a forum for input on the Funds Dissemination Committee Community Engagement page [2] Meta. Visit this page or the FDC main page [3] if you would like to provide your thoughts and to find more information on how to get involved. Please provide your thoughts on Meta, as we are posting this announcement in several places and would like to collect input in one place.
