WMF will provide a outlet for questions from the Chapter with regard to the online fundraiser and will provide answers to those questions.

WMF must own and administer a bank account and be able to receive donations, deposit donations in its bank account, and make monetary transfers or other payments from the bank account.
WMF must follow established accounting and reporting practices regarding its revenue and spending.

WMF will work with Chapters on Chapter-specific advertising on various and appropriate WMF project sites and mechanisms (geo-notices, access to language site notices, etc.).
In cooperation with the Chapter, WMF will develop a prominently-visible, appropriate text and visual presentation, including a hyperlink to the Chapter Fundraising webpage, on the WMF Fundraising landing page, in the relevant languages to the Chapter. As of July 30, 2009, the actual design of the new donation page will be determined in large part by the Annual Fundraiser Public Relations and Marketing plan which is scheduled to begin August 15, 2009. At this time, current plans include a re-designed donation page with upgraded giving streams (including prominent and easy Credit Card processing).
With potential donors that we can determine a country (via geo-location of ISP), the donation page will be split 60/40 in shared presence between the WMF and Chapter. The donor can then choose to donate to the WMF or to the Chapter.
