- The first page summarizes the key points of Finnish fundraising law (rahankeräyslaki). In Finland, it is illegal to plead with audience to raise funds without a special permission issued by the Police Board.
- The second page: according to the Police Board, the fundraising message appearing in the top of Wikipedia pages fulfills the definition of fundraising campaign. And there is no permission applied for the campaign, and it is criminal to arrange a fundraising campaign without permission.
- The last page (lausuntopyyntö = request for comment): The Police Board asks:
- in what purpose the request for donation message is published
- the justification for the message to not to be an illegal fundraising message
- how much money people have donated till now.
My recommendation for Finnish wikipedians: save your time and answer nothing to the letter. It's interesting to see what the Finnish Police Board can do to a large American nonprofit foundation. My guess: nothing.
This is not the first time the Police Board attacks fundraising. In 2012, a crowdfunded textbook Kickstarter project was delayed because a similar request of comment. The fundraiser decided to return all the money raised. After that, a Finnish company decided to fund the textbook as a PR move.
