Direct project expenditures (all amounts in EUR)

Projects to promote free knowledge are central to the budget plan. Target groups are mainly volunteer communities for Wikimedia projects, members, and users. Furthermore we organize projects in schools and universities. We support international cooperation on Wikimedia projects, meetings on a multinational level, working together with the Wikimedia chapters and communities in our neighbouring countries. We encourage the spreading of free knowledge and content, particularly in the German language and its regional dialects. We help writers and photographers to gain access to libraries and archives, events and meetings, and support the development of skills and tools. We attend meetings with local authorities and congresses related to Open Source and Open Content. For 2012, the following project expenditures are planned:

Indirect project expenditures (all amounts in EUR)

Aside from funds used directly for projects, there is a number of indirect administration expenditures such as the office facilities, rent, salaries of non-project employees, or board expenses. Some of these expenditures are classic administrative costs of membership associations, such as members administration, general assembly, fees for changing the bylaws, and legal advice. But this part of the budget focuses on building and maintaining communication structures, in addition and beyond single projects. We need facilities to publish our reports, provide informations, plan public relations activities, and store our promotion material. The center of all these activities is our office in Graz. This part of the budget also comprises the costs for financial transactions an for all the accountancy.
