About Wikimedia District of Columbia:

Wikimedia District of Columbia is the official chapter of the Wikimedia movement in the Washington, DC area. The chapter is incorporated in the District of Columbia, which is its principal place of business. The chapter serves the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, and West Virginia and conducts outreach activities to further the mission of the Wikimedia movement, including free access to the world’s information.

Internal controls:

The President and Treasurer are, and were throughout the fiscal year, the only persons authorized to incur expenses on behalf of Wikimedia District of Columbia, in accordance with the Fiscal Control Policy. Expenses were authorized by the Board of Directors or by the President in order to conduct day-to-day business.

Accounts payable:

Wikimedia District of Columbia has no lines of credit, so any recognized accounts payable are from accounts where an expense is recognized but payment is deferred for any reason. Expenses are recognized when the chapter receives documentation of an expense such as an invoice or receipt.

Asset accounts:

Wikimedia District of Columbia maintains two checking accounts at Wells Fargo Bank, one for general purposes and the other for Wikimedia Foundation grants. The Wikimedia Foundation required that funds associated with grants from it be held in a separate account. Wikimedia District of Columbia maintains a PayPal account to receive payments.

A detailed description of programs, including direct programs and grants, is provided in the Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2014–15.
