This page presents Wikimedia Hungary's programme plan and associated budget for the year 2014. This plan only includes programmes that specifically require funding. Further programmes may be carried out based on the initiative of our members, utilizing our existing reserves, IT infrastructure, office, and the support of our staff member.
The plan was discussed and approved at our general assembly at 26th April 2014. Its development can be followed through our reports.
The total budget is distributed amongst the various strategic objectives as shown below.
All amounts are in Hungarian forints, amounts in US dollars are only for informational purposes. 1USD = 226 HUF / 1 HUF = 0,00442 USD
|Type of spending||Planned budget||Distribution|
|Programs||3 150 000 ($13 923)||35%|
|Supporting like-minded organizations||100 000 ($442)||1%|
|Administration, overhead||5 350 000 ($23 647)||59,5%|
|Other (reserves)||400 000 ($1 768)||4,5%|
|Total||9 000 000 ($39 780)||100%|
Our total expected spending for the fiscal (and calendar) year of 2014 is somewhere between 7-7.5 million HUF (~30-33 000 USD). Compared to 2012, we spent 20% more in 2013. A lower level of expansion is expected for 2014.
The average overplanning is 15% compared to the expected spending for the year. An additional 4.5% "reserve" (named "other costs") was added to the plan to completely ensure our financial security.
This plan does not count with the fact that most of our programs are at least partly (or fully) externally funded or supported by other, non-financial ways (e.g. free room usage, etc.), however this shifts our spending plans heavily towards the overhead costs.
