Why I contribute to Wikipedia is because it is a free encyclopedia
Your donation. Your curiosity. Your Wikipedia.
Sat, Jul 18, 2020
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
