Hi Sherif,

In general I like the idea, and it is not new.
Chapters and projects with more than USD 5'000 had been asked to provide a
budget or otherwise to be cut to USD 5'000.
In previous years, we tried that, but unfortunately it never hat any follow

What does not mean it does not work, but you might encounter mistrust when
trying to enforce that.

Kind regards,

Martin Knobloch
OWASP Chairman of the BOD
OWASP Netherlands Chapter Leader

> Hi all,
> Would very much like your feedback and if you have alternative suggestions
> please let me know.
> I have been thinking about the way we do our annual project/chapter
> budgets and wanted to run something by you.
> Why don’t we ask all the chapters/projects/committee for funds they
> *want/need* for initiatives for 2019 and for the foundation to have a
> general pool
> of funds for larger chapters + foundation to contribute & *raise* funds.
> This does a few things:
> 1) It would create more activity and highlight which parts of the
> community need funds to take on thise activities
> 2) it helps distribute funds in a simple way - because there is a general
> pool and we have identified all/most of the demand we know how much money
> needs to be in the pool / how much funds we need to raise
> 3) It shifts the conversation from - how do larger chapters keep the funds
> already earned - to how chapters can contribute to
> chapters/projects/committees can utilise funds to further the mission on
> the foundation.
> 4) These demands identified can also help act as the basis of foundation
> fund raising efforts. I.e. if there are not enough funds we go out and ask
> for it.
