Thank you.

We have recently down our fundraising banners, because we’ve hit our target. Thanks to you. Over the past few months, more than one million people have come together from all over the world to raise USD 29.5 million, keeping Wikipedia and its sister sites alive and flourishing for another year.

Your support is how we pay our bills. People like you, giving five dollars, twenty dollars, a hundred dollars. Thank you for helping us.

Does $29.5 million sound like a lot of money? Probably it does. But we’re the #5 most-popular site in the world – we operate on a tiny fraction of the resources of any other top site. We will use your money carefully and well, I promise you.

For everyone who helps pay for Wikipedia and all the Wikimedia projects, and for those who can't afford to help – thank you so much for making the world a better place.
