Wikipedia begins accepting donations through Apple Pay

Wikipedia has become a reference website for billions of people around the world. The Wikipedia Foundation, the company behind Wikipedia and other similar websites, is a non-profit organization where we find a large number of articles created and maintained by users altruistically.

On a recurring basis, it invites users to collaborate with the maintenance of this gigantic project from which many companies, such as Apple, obtain information for free, without collaborating financially, something that will change in the coming months when this foundation presents its payment plan for companies.

In the message inviting us to make a donation, the company states that:

We are a nonprofit organization that relies on donations to stay online and thrive, but 98% of our readers don’t just look the other way.

If everyone who reads Wikipedia gave just a little bit, we could keep Wikipedia thriving for years to come. The price of a cup of coffee is all we ask for.

New ways of financing
