Re: [Wikimedia-l] [Affiliates] Recognition of the Grupo de Usuários Wiki Movimento Brasil

2019-06-08 Thread Paulo Santos Perneta
Hey,

The affiliate was originally formed in 2008 as the wannabe chapter
Wikimedia Brasil, and made its life as a chapter until 2010 when it was
noticed that it was not incorporated nor had any intention of becoming
incorporated, and the whole thing was canceled.

Some of its members and new volunteers in Brazil then immediately joined
together to form the chapter again, and there even is a resolution in
Wikimania Haifa 2011 about that. The negotiations with affcom took an awful
lot of time and bureaucracy, and by 2013 they had already incorporated but
were still waiting to have the chapter approved. They eventually managed to
be approved as an user group by tlsummer 2013, which is the one that was
reapproved now.

I don't think it was announced on this list, so let me point out that the
Founation recently published its IRS Form 990 for 2017/18: see
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/IRS_tax_related_information/2017_Wikimedia_Foundation_Form_990_Frequently_Asked_Questions
for
the FAQ and

for
the form itself.
