Wikipedia Concludes Fundraiser and Reaches $20M
Wikipedia successfully ended its annual fundraiser with a record-breaking $20M, surpassing its $16M goal.
The Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit organization behind the Wikipedia and other related sites has just concluded its annual fundraising campaign after it reached a record breaking $20M that surpasses its $16M goal.
The conclusion of the campaign also marks the end of its quirky fundraising banners which are now replaced by a ‘thank you’ banner. This banner is linked to a letter coming from Wikimedia Foundation Executive Director Sue Gardner, thanking its donors for their generous contributions and for making Wikipedia the ‘#5 most-popular site in the world’.
The entire proceeds will be used to buy hardware, develop new features, expand its mobile services, provide legal defense for the Wikimedia projects and support for its volunteers worldwide.View Article Source »
