The Wikimedia Foundation is a non-profit that focuses on the development of free, multilingual content to wiki-based projects. The Wikimedia Foundation operates Wikipedia, but has also helped develop Wikimedia Commons, Wiktionary, Wikisource, Wikiquote, Wikibooks, Wikinews, and Wikiversity.
Earlier this year, Wikimedia announced that it has raised $8 million for the 2009-10 fiscal, exceeding its goal for the year by $500K. The Foundation has received over 230,000 donations, up from 125,000 donations received during the 2008-09 campaign. It’s unclear if the $2 million from Google is bundles into the $8 million but I’m sure we’ll find out tomorrow.
The Wikimedia Foundation is a non-profit company focused on empowering and engaging people around the world to collect and develop educational content under a free content license or in the public domain, and to disseminate it effectively and globally. The Wikimedia Foundation’s most prestigious project is Wikipedia, however, they are involved in others such as Wikimedia Commons, Wiktionary, Wikisource, Wikiquote, Wikibooks, Wikinews, Wikiversity.
