Wikimedia fundraiser planned for fall 2007

Last month, Wikimedia consultant Sue Gardner announced that a fundraiser would be held sometime this fall, possibly from September 23 through November 22. The last Wikimedia fundraiser ended in January, and netted the Foundation over US$1,000,000 in one month. By comparison, over the 7 1/2 months since the end of the fundraiser, only about US$508,000 has been raised.

New bids for Wikimania 2008 closed this week. Bids can be expanded and refined, but must be finalized by September 23; on that day, a public meeting will be held, and over the following two weeks, a question-and-answer period will help the judges with their final decision, currently scheduled for October 6. Six bids have been entered: Alexandria, Atlanta, Cape Town, Karlsruhe, London, and Toronto.
