Direct project expenditures (all amounts in EUR)

Projects to promote free knowledge are central to the budget plan. Target groups are – as before – 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 distribution of free knowledge and content, particularly on Austria-related topics. 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 2013, the following project expenditures are planned:

Indirect project expenditures (all amounts in EUR)

Aside from funds used directly for projects, there are 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 typical administrative costs of membership associations, such as members administration, general assembly, fees for changing the bylaws, and legal advice. This part of the budget focuses on building and maintaining communication structures, in addition and beyond single projects. Also our facilities for publishing our reports, providing informations, planing public relation activities, and storing our promotion material need to be maintained. The center of all these activities is our new office in Vienna, which opened in autumn 2012. This part of the budget also comprises the costs for financial transactions and for all the accountancy.

Receipts (all amounts in EUR)

Overall income from grants budget of the Wikimedia Foundation plus local fundraising done in Austria.
