    he Foundation mostly relies on support from individuals. Please consider making a donation today, be it time, money or hardware. The Benefactors page is dedicated to some of the companies and individuals helping to sustain the Wikimedia projects. The Wikimedia Foundation does not necessarily endorse the activities of its Corporate Benefactors.

    The Wikimedia Foundation has 501(c)(3) tax exempt status in the United States. Donations made from other nations may also be tax DEDUCTIBLE.

    he Wikimedia Board of Trustees is the ultimate corporate authority in the Wikimedia Foundation Inc., and has the power to direct the activities of the Foundation. The Foundation bylaws may be seen at Wikimedia Foundation bylaws. Other policies set by the Board may be seen at policies.

    The Foundation manages the budget, which pays primarily for computer equipment and hosting. Other costs include human resources necessary to the running of the Wikimedia projects, though most people are volunteers

    The current secretary of the Foundation is Erik Moeller.
