Re: [Wikimedia-l] [Wikimedia Announcements] (press release) Frank Schulenburg named executive director of new Wiki Education Foundation

Hi, Mike.

For an answer to your question about the name, please see this
conversation[1] on Meta. Our board is active answering questions on wiki
and not on mailing lists, so I encourage you to post questions to the Wiki
Education Foundation board on Meta.

Hope that answers it for you,

 Hi all,

 Frank, congratulations on the new job. :-) Can I ask for a clarification
 on the funding situation please?

  (1) WMF grant money
  The Wiki Education Foundation received a grant to get things off the
  last year as part of the Projects and Events Grants process. The Wiki
  Education Foundation has already reached out to a major donor in the
  States and is confident to get third-party funding in place by the second
  quarter of this year.

 Are you anticipating that direct donors will be able to support all of
 WEF's future funding needs, or might you be applying to GAC or FDC for
 funding in the future?

 I'd also like to echo Andy's question:
  ...why isn't this called The Wiki Education North America
  Foundation,, or suchlike?

 as that would seem to be a more natural name for the organisation (unless
 it has international intentions?), and would help avoid the confusion
 between 'WEF' and 'WMF'.

 Also, as a general question to those involved, the announcement QA says:
 He was chosen by the Board of the Wiki Education Foundation in a process
 that began in late 2013 and concluded in February 2014. Please could more
 details of that process be shared? What was the process, how was it
 structured, and who was involved in it?
