Hello all, I regret to inform you that Rand Montoya will be leaving the Wikimedia Foundation. His last day with us will be September 30, 2010.
Rand has generously agreed to support and advise us for the next three months as we're gearing up for the 2010 fundraiser while he looks for opportunities outside Wikimedia. Rand will especially help us close the loop on our discussions in Bristol: finalizing the next version of the chapters fundraising agreement, and coordinating a self-assessment process of the chapters fundraising work to-date. Since Rand joined us two years ago, he has been tremendously successful in his work for the Wikimedia Foundation. The 2008 and 2009 fundraisers set new record revenue numbers for the organization, and have enabled us to expand our mission activities and grow our impact world-wide. Rand also helped us to establish good fundraising practices, including improved donor communication and cultivation, and led efforts to help the international Wikimedia chapters fundraise. Please join me in thanking Rand for all he has done for Wikimedia, and wishing him the best for his future. All best, Erik -- Erik Möller Deputy Director, Wikimedia Foundation Support Free Knowledge: http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Donate _______________________________________________ Please note: all replies sent to this mailing list will be immediately directed to Foundation-L, the public mailing list about the Wikimedia Foundation and its projects.
