If not English, in what language is this proposal submitted?:
We should help chapters to earn money in regions with large language populations where the Wikimedia projects are currently under-performing relative to the opportunity. Wikimedians in those countries know best what they need and where to spend money.
Some chapters not only get money by donation but they earn some money to. For example there are newspapers, telecommunication companies, etc that uses wikipedia articles on their webpage and there are chapters who get some money from a sold wikipedia-DVD / wikipedia-book. Chapters in India, China, etc could do the same and e.g. hire programmer to write mediawiki-extensions to improve the software (e.g. language-support).
