Just curious as to how many of you donate to Wikipedia. I donated a couple of years ago and often get "Please do it again" emails, claiming that only 2% of Wikipedia users donate. I'm thinking of sending them a few bucks soon.

Are any of you part of that 2%?

I donated once a few years ago. I use Charity Navigator more than Wikipedia and donate more often.

I'm not sure I understand. Charity Navigator and Wikipedia are 2 completely different things.

Isn't that like saying "I spend more time driving than eating."?

Sure, that may be true, but one isn't a substitute for the other. Color me confused.

I wasn't implying they were interchangeable. I know they are two different sites but they do similar jobs. Both provide information.

Hi

I never donated because Im poor. But even if I was rich I wouldnt donate to Wikipedia. I think I would only donate to diseases like cancer/ child cancer etc..

re: "But even if I was rich I wouldnt donate to Wikipedia."

Do you use their service? And if so, why wouldn't you pay for it if you could afford to?

(Just curious...not arguing or pushing back, just having a conversation)

I use it all the time. If I had money I think it should go to more important causes. My main would be helping people pay for disease treatments they cant afford.

I would if Wikipedia offered other payment methods. Credit cards are *NOT* the standard payment method in my country. It is such in a lot of European countries (not in UK though).

And PayPal ... no.
