Jon Schull started a dot vote Fri 18 Aug 2017

How should we allocate the $50,000 we got from Google.org? You have 10 dots to "spend". How should we spend them? Closed Wed 6 Sep 2017

Outcome
by Jon Schull Thu 7 Sep 2017

39 people participated in our experimental non-binding poll on how to allocate the google funds

There were 2 big winners:
* Support EnablingTheFuture (111 points)
* Establish a mini-grant Fund (80 points)

Because the mini-grant fund could Support EnablingTheFuture (among other things) I've created a new thread to propose and hopefully implement a first mini-grant program.

Please consider the Minigrant Program Proposal

To jumpstart the process, please create and review Funding proposals like this one.

This is a non-binding poll to begin thinking about this question. You can change your allocations over time based on emerging discussions.

You can also add your own suggestions to this initial list of options, and "fake-fund them." This prototypes the mini-grant process!)

Use the discussion thread to help clarify and discuss the process as well as the proposals.

108 - Support EnablingTheFuture
77 - Establish a mini-grant fund.
25 - Fund a Summer 2018 e-NABLE Conference in Portland
19 - Fund the e-NABLE Alliance Retreat in Baltimore Dec 13-17
18 - Keep the money in reserve for future needs.
37 - Support for chapters in Latin America with equipment and materials
17 - Events which connect and inform chapter leaders
31 - Further Development of Better Online Collaboration Tools

I think the most useful benefits would be from the top down. Support the ETF crew that ties things together. Bring chapter leaders together, so they may learn from each other, push new info to their groups, and form collaborations.

Any ways really to help the development of eNABLE chapters around the world and influence other areas/causes with Open Design like by having more design challenges (eg - Future is within reach)

Jon Schull Tue 22 Aug 2017

Great to see new participants and new proposals (Christian added "Support for chapters in Latin America with equipment and materials" and it's already garnered 12 points).

We need to figure out how to categorize and execute these proposals and the others that will follow . Here are some questions to ponder and discuss.

  • Any of these fundable proposals could fall under the category of mini-grants. Would that be good?

  • And how do we decide how to allocate funds to various mini-grant proposals.

For example
* one person, one vote
* one person, ten votes? (as in this non-binding dot-poll)
* votes per person determined by past contributions (how?)
* etc.

The way to work out the answers to such questions might be
* to use this Loomio to discuss, then informally propose, then get feedback and revise, etc.
* And, of course, to get more people involved.

The Loomio and Enspiral communities have thought a lot about these issues and come up with a variety of solutions and formulas. Let's learn from them and from each other, to move toward agreed-upon processes for agreed-upon decisions.

EL

Everton Lins Fri 25 Aug 2017

The choice "Support EnablingTheFuture" can attract a lot of votes but as the "how" isn't there, it gets little subjective and it may distract attention from other more objective goals. How about setting a specific goal for this one?

JS

Jon Schull Sun 27 Aug 2017

An excellent suggestion, Everton.

A specific goal and proposed process be welcome.

Note that this was an experimental, non-binding poll (I think it's working well, but I'd like to get more people involved).

Then we can begin figuring out how to allocate real money.

You'll find another experiment, this one using real money and specifically targeted to EnablingTheFuture at https://opencollective.com/re-nable.
