The Board of Trustees hereby resolves that:

Entities that fundraise using the Wikimedia trademarks must follow our guiding principles for fundraising, as well as the Wikimedia trademark policy and any other applicable policies. All movement entities are free to fundraise outside of the Wikimedia project sites.

Some chapters have developed the capability to collect donations from visitors to Wikimedia project sites ("payment processing"), and other chapters have expressed an interest in doing so.

We believe chapter payment processing should be considered only where it adds sufficient value to the movement to offset the additional significant time and money required from both the chapter and the WMF.

The four chapters that processed payments last year (Wikimedia Deutschland, Wikimedia France, Wikimedia UK, and Wikimedia CH) will continue to be able to payment process, as long as they meet the criteria laid out in the Board's August 2011 letter and sign the annual fundraising agreement. Compliance with the criteria will be determined by the Executive Director.

We ask the Executive Director not to allow any additional chapters to process payments, until the Board revisits the framework for fundraising and payment processing in late 2015 in advance of the November 2016 fundraising campaign.
