Free knowledge around the world

We can help secure the future of free knowledge for everyone.

Wikipedia is possible because of a powerful idea: that people, like you and me, can participate, cooperate, and support in building the world’s knowledge and making it freely available to everyone, everywhere.

Today, thanks to the support of millions of volunteer contributors and supporters, one can wander Wikipedia for hours. With more than 40 million Wikipedia articles and 35 million freely licensed images, Wikipedia can answer almost any question, and take you places we’ve never been.

Donations support the creation and sharing of free knowledge in real, practical ways. It helps to make Wikipedia fast, secure, and accessible to everyone in the world. It helps us bring free access to Wikipedia in places where high mobile data costs prevent people from going online. It helps us support people who are digitizing knowledge currently locked away in analog archives. It protects Wikipedia from threats to free knowledge and the open internet.

Wikipedia support means that you can find the information you need now, wherever you may be—to settle a bet with a friend at a dinner party, or to understand the world around us.

Donating to Wikipedia makes champions of a powerful idea… and need (please see my article We need to claim ownership for our virtual identity data)

Wikipedia will continue to evolve, grow, and meet new challenges. Let’s invest in our future and taking this journey for freedom of knowledge around the world. Knowledge shouldn’t “be limited and shouldn’t be locked in libraries, books and archives” as Mervat Salman is saying in a recent interview:
