Please read a personal appeal from Wikipedia's founder
Thank you for helping keep Wikipedia online and ad-free. It's been a year since we've asked. This is your annual reminder.
If all our past donors simply gave again today, we wouldn't have to worry about fundraising for the rest of the year. Please help us get back to improving Wikipedia.
We are the small non-profit that runs the #5 website in the world. We have only 200 staff but serve 500 million users, and have costs like any other top site: servers, power, programs, and people.
Wikipedia is something special. It is like a library or a public park. It is like a temple for the mind, a place we can all go to think and learn.
To protect our independence, we'll never run ads. We take no government funds. We survive on donations from our readers. Now is the time we ask.
