Wikimedia Foundation Chair Florence Devouard

Wikipedia is entering 2007 as one of the 10 most visited websites in the world. That's a great testament to our success.

However, with this success comes a new set of challenges and responsibilities. As we plan for the future of Wikipedia and all of the Wikimedia projects, our two most important goals now are the reliability of our content and the long-term sustainability of every project in which we are involved.

To meet these goals we have a lot of work to do, so I am asking for your help. In the coming year, the Wikimedia Foundation anticipates dramatically increasing spending to keep up with server and traffic capacity demands, add new staff on the organizational level, improve our software and develop methods to better ensure high quality content, all while making progress toward our goal of giving free knowledge to everyone.

Our visitors and editors have been generous in the past and contributions have kept us going during our first three years. Our recent audit shows how responsible we have been with the many donations we have received. As we need more funds to keep the projects going and growing, please consider making a gift to the Wikimedia Foundation. You will be making an investment in Wikipedia and all of our associated projects, helping to ensure these resources remain accessible and meaningful as our universe of users grows.
