[Fwd: [Foundation-l] [Announcement] Sloan awards Wikimedia USD 1m annually for three years]

Pyb
Sue de la Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) vient d'annoncer aujourd'hui que la
fondation Alfred P. Sloan a accepté de donner un million de dollars par
an, et ce pendant trois ans. Le travail fait au niveau de WMF ces
dernières années afin d'assurer la pérénité des projets Wikimédia paye
ses fruits.

Bien entendu, sans le contenu rédigé par vous tous, les efforts des
employés et du conseil d'administration ne serviraient à rien. Un grand
bravo à vous tous et continuons nos efforts en vue d'accroître le
contenu de nos projets, la qualité générale des projets, assurer la
communication autour de ces projets, recruter toujours plus de
contributeurs, récolter de l'argent pour faire tourner de nouveaux
serveurs afin d'accueillir toujours plus d'Internautes. Beaucoup de
boulot en perspective. N'oubliez pas que malgré quelques critiques,
beaucoup de gens pensent qu'on fait du bon boulot. Continuons !

Hi folks,

I’m delighted to tell you that yesterday, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation
board of directors voted to award the Wikimedia Foundation USD 1 million
annually for the coming three years. A total of USD 3 million, spread
over three years.

This is what Sloan characterizes as "institutional funding" - meaning, a
form of grant designed to help us work towards our general goals – in
our case, financial and operational sustainability, increasing quality,
increasing and broadening participation, and distributing our material
beyond the wiki environment. As you know, we’ve recently expanded the
staff from 10 to 15, and we still have a few more positions to fill:
this funding will offset those increased costs.

This is _fabulous_ news. Sloan is high-profile and widely-respected:
this donation is financially significant for us, and it also signals
that Sloan sees our work as important and our organization as trustworthy.

I’d like to take a moment to thank Erik Moeller, who developed our first
contact with Sloan through his work representing Wikimedia on the
Encyclopedia of Life's institutional council. (Sloan is an EOL funder.)
  Based on that initial relationship, in January Sloan invited Erik to
present to them about Wikimedia, after which they asked us for a formal
request for funding. Without Erik, this would not have happened. Yay,
Erik :-)

We will be sending out a press release in a few hours, and I will also
send this note to foundation-l soon. Meanwhile, please join the staff
and board of the Wikimedia Foundation in celebrating this terrific news!

Thanks,
Sue
