Why I contribute to Wikipedia is because it is a free encyclopedia

I have been a contributor to Wikipedia for more than 10yrs (may be longer but that is none of your biziwaks) and I was privileged enough to learn about Wiki when I was still in school. Making full use of it.

Over the last 8 or 18 months, I have found out that I get better information from Wiki than Uganda mainstream media. Apart from my usual yearly contribution, this CORONA pandemic finally taught me why INFORMATION IS POWER. I have no idea how they do all their work but certainly, it costs money. Consequently, apart from my usual yearly tiny contribution, today, I sent a little bit more. Just to say “Thank you. Knowledge is priceless. Information is Power”. MLN

Dear Martha,

I feel so lucky to get to be the person to thank you for your C$ xx.xx one-time gift, on behalf of a world of people seeking free knowledge.

I used to try to guess what motivated you to give, but the longer I do this work, the more I realize I can’t put your curiosity in a box. There is no one singular experience of Wikipedia. Curiosity is as diverse as we all are, and it looks a little different for each of us.

When you use Wikipedia next, I hope you feel that it belongs to you. Because without you, and without the millions of people who come back to us every day, we would be nothing.

Thank you for giving Wikipedia shape, and purpose, and momentum. Thank you for fitting us into your life.

With immense gratitude,

Katherine Maher, Executive Director
Wikimedia Foundation
