Imagine a world in which every person has free access to the sum of knowledge and can participate in its collective construction
MORE THAN WIKIPEDIA
The free encyclopedia has changed the way we build and access knowledge on the Internet. Wikipedia, the fifth most visited website on the net, is our best-known project. Maybe you don’t know that it has 11 sister projects that allow us to expand Wikipedia, generate shared knowledge in different formats, and improve access to information for everyone.
We advocate for universal access to information, for the privacy of those who use the web and for their freedom of expression. We train institutions on the importance of preserving a free and open Internet. Everyone has the right to search, create and share culture and knowledge on the Internet.
There are many ways to support Wikipedia and its sister projects. As a non-profit organization, our activity is possible thanks to the donations of thousands of people, the fees of our members, and the work that our volunteer network carries out.
Wikipedia and the Wikimedia projects have changed the way we access and build knowledge in the digital ecosystem. The more diverse the people who participate, the more complete the information we provide will be. In order to reduce gaps and biases, we need Wikipedia to gather information that is representative of all cultures and social groups, and make it available in every language.
Help us share knowledge and make it free
Our global volunteer community includes more than 200,000 people editing and sharing knowledge in multiple formats, millions of people viewing information or reading, and tens of thousands making small donations to support us.
