WCR / GF split discussion

  • There were errors in the central team WCR estimates that have been addressed after discussion with Shankar (Central treasury).
  • Our WCR for 2016 = 1.36 (=$68089/$50056).
  • Our top-off is $6995, and general fund split is $8930, for a total of $15925. This is based on ARC modification voted in Nov 2016. 
  • Our current disbursement rate is $50k/year. We can expect top-off and GF split next. 
  • To prepare for a tapering in the GF split distribution, we should ramp up funding to match our disbursements (~$50k) over the next 2-3 years. 
  • A decision on adding a project this year should be based on our fundraising activity goes this year. 
  • The central team has mandated that going forward no disbursements will be entertained after November 30th for calculating the final WCR balance.
