Please contact us at benefactors@wikimedia.org if you have questions or if your DAF of choice is not listed.

Amazon Payments

You can make a donation in U.S. Dollars through Amazon Payments, please select an amount and choose "Donate via Amazon". If you are donating via Amazon in a currency other than U.S. Dollars, please be aware that your funding source may be rejected or that you may encounter currency exchange fees. We encourage you to contact your bank for more information.


Donate Bitcoins

Alternatively, make a recurring Bitcoin donation.

Please note that the Wikimedia Foundation can only refund Bitcoin donations in Bitcoin. Because we do not store Bitcoins, refunds will be calculated based on the U.S. Dollar amount we received via instant exchange at the time of the donation, using our payment processor's Bitcoin sell rate when the refund is issued. The Wikimedia Foundation is not responsible for any change in value based on fluctuating exchange rates.

For questions, please contact donate@wikimedia.org.

Square Cash

You can make a donation with a debit card or through your Square Cash account.
