Volunteer Hour Match
Many companies will match an employee's time spent volunteering (this includes tasks like editing Wikipedia or its sister sites, patrolling Wiki pages for vandals, and contributing to the MediaWiki software) with a financial gift to the nonprofit. Learn more about the Volunteer Hour Match program.

You can make a donation in U.S. Dollars through Amazon Pay, please select an amount and choose "Amazon Pay". If you are donating via Amazon in a currency other than U.S. Dollars, please be aware that your funding source may be rejected or that you may experience extra charges associated with converting a charge into another currency. We encourage you to contact your bank for more information.
Alternatively, make a recurring Bitcoin donation
Please note that the Wikimedia Foundation can only refund Bitcoin donations in Bitcoin. Because we do not store Bitcoins, refunds will be calculated based on the U.S. Dollar amount we received via instant exchange at the time of the donation, using our payment processor's Bitcoin sell rate when the refund is issued. The Wikimedia Foundation is not responsible for any change in value based on fluctuating exchange rates.
