Great job and very interesting. I had this tought during sending you data for Wikimedia Polska, so I want to share it here as well. In the report there is no "projects" entry for costs but only "events" and "organizational development". Chapters are doing not only events but also projects leading to improvement of free content and data - such as colaboration with GLAMs, software developement, developement of wikidata, microgrant systems etc, which are hard to be called "events" and they are also not "organizational developement". I would suggest to add to future reports positions "content and software improvement projects" or something similar. I think especially for thematic organizations it is the core of their activity.
