Ensuring free knowledge for future generations
Access to knowledge is a fundamental human right. The Wikimedia Endowment is our enduring commitment to a world of freely shared knowledge, now and in perpetuity.
We believe that knowledge is a foundation. It is a foundation for human potential, a foundation for freedom, a foundation for opportunity. Wikipedia is the world’s largest free knowledge ecosystem — a public trust for the common good — built by people, for people.
Your gift today will help ensure that Wikipedia is there when you need us. We ask you, humbly, to help Wikipedia keep thriving not just for 25 years or 50 years, but forever. Click the button below to make a donation, or view other ways you can give.
The Wikipedia Legacy Society is ensuring that Wikipedia provides free knowledge to the world, forever. Each member has committed to making a legacy gift to the Wikimedia Endowment through estate planning.
