The goals of the foundation are to encourage the growth and development of free content, Wiki-based projects and to provide the full contents of those projects to the public free of charge and without advertising.

<-- I dont believe you that "bomis" is funding wikimedia. Just a clever way of trying to sneak your commercial link in there. The Wikimedia foundation held speeches at the recent ChaosCommunicationCongress? in Berlin, and they mentioned their sponsors but never you. Also: Search results on The official website of the Wikimedia Foundation For query "bomis.com" No page with this exact title exists, trying full text search.) --Mutante

Thats not true in this way: in the beginnings, Jimbo Wales has paid for technical infrasturcture for Wiki_p_edia mostly out of his personal money, earned from his company bomis. At present most money for Wikipedia comes from donations. The Wikimedia Foundation has never been founded by earnings from bomis. sansculotte

Haha,ok,i learned my part.Let me add this though:

 innocence> mutante> fwiw, bomis's funding is currently about $1000/month (iirc) whereas the WMF spent 
                      about $40,000 on hardware this quarter, so it's not like wikipedia is entirely funded by evil 
                      porn ;)

The foundation relies on support from individuals like you. Please consider making a donation today.
