Chief Global Development Officer

The Global Development team exists to provide for focused efforts to build Wikimedia's projects in places we are not yet the ubiquitous free knowledge resource. We pilot approaches ourselves and via partners (chapters, community groups, like-minded organizations, individuals) with the goal of creating scalable programs that build our editor communities and create high quality knowledge in local languages around the globe with a priority in the Global South. We seek to extend our reach to billions of people with our mobile strategy. We serve the global movement via our global education, catalyst, mobile, communications, grants, and global learning teams.

Fundraising

Chief Revenue Officer

The fundraiser is turning into something that educates Wikimedia users about how our projects and movement work. Tens of millions of users click on banners and read the appeals every year. The primary mission of the Wikimedia Foundation fundraising team is now to improve that educational function. Imagine future campaigns that focus on recruiting new editors more than new donors. That's what we're trying to get to.
