[personal profile] lirazel raised the issue that we'll have to look at no matter where we end up and how we do it in this comment.

[personal profile] trascendenza speaks here about some organizational modes and their financial implications.

I've looked at the financials for OTW (budget c. $500k and the Wikimedia Foundation (c $50M), and I think a Network of Our Own would fall between the two, with a budget of order of magnitude $5M/year (range $2M-$10M). More than 1/2 of this would be for staff: full-time, experienced project managers, for instance.

We should expect to have to pay for one year=$5M without seeing any site yet. This sounds like a Kickstarter to me. Probably someone who knows how to run this sort of project could outline the Kickstarter, levels, etc.
