Subject: [Wikinews-l] Kicking off the 2010-2011 fundraiser

Hi All,
I want to start a conversation about the 2010-2011 Fundraiser.  It
won't launch for a few months, but we want community involvement early
and often.  We plan for "many small gifts" to be the heart of our
funding strategy.  Our community fundraiser is one central method by
which we support the projects.

The fundraiser this year will probably be focused on banners.  We will
emphasize testing and changing ideas.  The most important part is what
our community is good at: thinking, researching, and improving.

Anyone can join and help at any time.  But we need people who are
willing to be involved throughout the fundraiser ...  people who want
to be creative and willing to learn from the past ... people who want
to serve as an active part of the fundraiser team.  There will be
Foundation staff deeply involved in this, but we are looking for
people from the community to join and help us design this campaign.

If you want to help, would you add your name to
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fundraising_2010/Committee ?  We will
be in contact - soon - to get things started.

the sum of all knowledge.  Help us make it a reality!
