Objectives of the chapters edit

(From the FAQ)

Chapters exist to further the goals of Wikimedia. They do so by engaging in a wide range of activities, which include but are not limited to the following:

  • Promoting the Wikimedia projects so that new and different people join them or use them (academics, scientists, college students, schools, libraries etc.)
  • Investigating and negotiating partnerships on a moral or financial basis to support the Wikimedia projects
  • Helping outside organizations use Wikimedia content, possibly for their own benefit (eg. help publishers of local history Wikireaders, of a Wikipedia DVD in a given language)
  • Organizing local and national events and initiatives (eg. participate in trade shows, set up Wikipedia parties, give lectures etc.)
  • Taking care of PR and lobbying in a given country, giving the press an interlocutor in their own language and culture
  • Enabling (where applicable) tax-deductible donations in the country they are based in
  • Promoting free content and wiki culture in their respective territory
