    From Strategic Planning

    Funding will absolutely be part of the discussion - it's already listed as financial sustainability at Strategic Priority 5, Emerging_strategic_priorities#ESP_5._Optimize_Wikimedia.27s_operations. -- Philippe 00:33, 25 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    There is a search function... it's at the topic of the page, next to the View History and drop down arrow, if you're using the default (vector) skin. A quickie search for "fundraising" found a number of hits. -- Philippe 00:51, 25 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    No problem. :) This is the Foundation's latest iteration of the default skin, so things are moving around a little. Notice, also, that there's a drop down arrow next to View History - some functions are kind of hidden there. You'll also see a new toolbar in the edit screen, I'm very fond of that. -- Philippe 00:57, 25 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    It has been done. I'm an administrator, but I am not usually doing work on the wiki - I'm the Wikimedia Foundation's employee charged with facilitating contributor engagement. I say all of that in order to point you to Strategic Planning:Admins, which is a list of people who would be happy to help with anything you need. (I'm also happy to help, just don't count on a quick response time from me, because I'm often traveling). -- Philippe 01:11, 25 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Task forces

    Since you have an interest in the funding piece, have you visited and submitted your name to be considered for a task force? You might be interested in the task force that will deal with funding. There are a limited number of spots officially on the task force, but even if you're not in one of them, you're invited to engage with the task force in their work - in collaborative fashion, all users can see and be a part of the work of any task force. -- Philippe 01:14, 25 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
