Hi! Welcome to the website for the Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit organization that operates Wikipedia and other free knowledge projects.


Unfortunately, wikimediafoundation.org does not allow open editing at this time; however, we want everyone to be able to contribute. If you have suggestions for how we could improve this site please use the links below:


I wrote this press release at the request of Florence, who was seeing disinformation spreading fast due to a Reuters report. Submarine 13:35, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

I changed "founder of Wikipedia" to "founder of Wikimedia Foundation". The former is a subject of some dispute, of course, with Larry Sanger going around spreading his self-appointed title, and we don't need to take a stand on that. In this context, the important thing is Wikimedia, and it is undisputed that I am the (sole) founder of the nonprofit organization. (Larry had been fired long before the Foundation started.)--Jimbo Wales 15:06, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
