At Wikipedia, we want everyone to have equal access to knowledge, forever

Thank you for considering a donation to the Wikimedia Foundation, the nonprofit that hosts Wikipedia and other crucial free knowledge projects.

Each year, because of the 2% of readers who give to support our mission, we can expand the reach of free knowledge to new corners of the world. If Wikipedia matters and is useful to you too, please join them and donate $5, $20, $50 or whatever feels right to you today.

Wikipedia is different. No advertising, no subscription fees, no paywalls. Those don't belong here. Wikipedia is a place to learn, free from bias or agenda.

Today, we invite you to donate whatever feels right. Show the world that access to independent and unbiased information matters to you.

Thank you.

Qualified Charitable Distributions

If you are a U.S. taxpayer aged 70.5 or older and have an Individual Retirement Account (IRA), you are eligible to make a gift via a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD), also known as an IRA Charitable Rollover. In order to benefit from the tax advantages of satisfying all or some of your Required Minimum Distribution through a QCD, the gift must be issued directly from your IRA custodian. This free tool from our partners at FreeWill can help you navigate this process.

The Wikimedia Foundation directs all QCD gifts to the Wikimedia Endowment, where they are invested to ensure the long-term future of Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects. For more information, contact

Legacy gift

You can support the future of free knowledge for generations to come by making a gift in your will or other estate plans. A legacy gift costs you nothing now and can be changed at any time, for any reason. Once realized, your gift will be added to the Wikimedia Endowment, where your legacy will live on by providing support to Wikimedia projects in perpetuity.

Legacy gifts are exempt from U.S. federal estate taxes. Make a legacy gift online at no cost using FreeWill (in the U.S.) or by including the following sample language in your will:

I give, devise, and bequeath [the sum of _____ USD (or other currency) OR _____ percent of the rest and residue of my estate] to the Wikimedia Endowment (tax identification number 87-3024488), a charitable corporation currently located at 1 Montgomery Street, Suite 1600, San Francisco, California, United States, to be used for its general charitable purposes at its discretion.
