Notes to accompany requirements to maintain eligibility statusEdit

[1] In order to maintain eligibility status, all entities must remain compliant with their agreements, including by submitting the required financial and activity reports within four months of end of fiscal year. The entity must continue to meet the material conditions of its agreement. The entity must maintain its affiliate status and signed agreement.

[2] With respect to current grants, entities must remain compliant with any current grant agreements with WMF. This includes, but is not limited to, submitting any and all reports by the date specified by WMF, having grant reports accepted by WMF, and returning unused grant funds or reallocating them to an approved purpose with WMF's permission within the timeframe specified by WMF.

[3] If new grants are approved, entities must remain compliant with any new grant agreements with WMF. This includes, but is not limited to, submitting any and all reports by the date specified by WMF, having grant reports accepted by WMF, and returning unused grant funds or reallocating them to an approved purpose with WMF's permission within the timeframe specified by WMF.

[4] If FDC funding is received, the entity must conclude all other grants before the start of the FDC funding period. This includes, but is not limited to, submitting any and all reports by the date specified by WMF, having grant reports accepted by WMF, and returning unused grant funds or reallocating them to an approved purpose with WMF's permission within the timeframe specified by WMF.

[5] With respect to unused grant funds retained with WMF's permission, entities must follow WMF's instructions regarding the unused funds. Entities must return funds by the deadline specified by WMF, or reallocate them to a new grant submission with WMF's approval. Unused funds must be returned or reallocated by 15 September, or the date eligibility for the current round is confirmed.

[6] The entity must remain compliant with relevant local and U.S. laws.

DefinitionsEdit

  • What we have considered 'grants' : grants through the Wikimedia Foundation Grants Program to organizations now recognized as Wikimedia affiliates that were already incorporated at the time each grant proposal was approved. We consider a grant to be complete once the required grant reports are submitted according to WMF's instructions and accepted by WMF on Meta, and any unused funds have been returned to WMF or reallocated with WMF's permission.
  • Grants completed by 30 June 2013 are counted toward eligibility in the 2013-2014 Round 1 FDC process. Grant reports need to be completed and accepted by the date eligibility is confirmed 15 September 2013.
  • What we have considered 'activity reports' : narrative reports in English (per the Chapter Agreement) that offer an overview of an entity’s annual activities and impact.
  • What we have considered 'financial reports' : financial reports in English (per the Chapter Agreement) that offer complete details of an entity’s revenue and expenditure over the course of its fiscal year. In particular, we have looked to ensure that entities recognized before or in 2010 have no gaps in their financial and narrative reporting for the last three years (i.e. from 2010 onwards) (Column J).
  • What we have considered 'most recently due' : annual financial and narrative reports that were already due at the time eligibility is announced on 15 July 2013 are considered 'most recently due'. The Chapter Agreement specifies that annual reports are due within four months of the end of each entity's fiscal year. In order to be confirmed as eligible, entities with reports due before 15 September 2013 must submit those reports by the deadline specified in the Chapter Agreement (within four months of the end of the entity's fiscal year). In order to maintain eligibility, entities with reports due before funds are distributed must also submit their annual reports by the deadline specified in the Chapter Agreement (within four months of the end of the entity's fiscal year). For example, if an entity's fiscal year ends on 31 December, its annual reports will be due by 30 April of the following year. For this entity, reports for the fiscal year 1 January 2012 - 31 December 2012 will be counted as 'most recently due'. If an entity's fiscal year ends 31 March, its annual reports will be due by 31 July of that same year. Therefore, the reports for fiscal year 1 April 2011 - 31 March 2012 will be considered 'most recently due', but the entity will still be required to submit its annual reports by 31 July 2013 for the fiscal year ending on 31 March 2013 in order to have eligibility confirmed on 15 September 2013. In the Eligibility Checklist and the Eligibility Status Table, WMF has specified the fiscal years for which reports may be missing or may be due in order to confirm or maintain eligibility.
  • As stated in the Chapter Agreement, entities must supply the Foundation with their reports within four months of the end of each entity's fiscal year. We have considered a document to be “supplied” if it is linked to from the Reports page on Meta. Where applicable, the eligibility gap may be met by entities that link to existing annual and/or financial reports that currently may not be on Meta.
