Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge. That's our commitment.
The Wikimedia Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to encouraging the growth, development and distribution of free, multilingual content, and to providing the full content of these wiki-based projects to the public free of charge. The Wikimedia Foundation operates some of the largest collaboratively edited reference projects in the world, including Wikipedia, the fifth most visited website in the world.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch with our organization contacts if you have any questions. They are working hard to ensure this day is a success and will help in any way they can.
We'll help you! All you'll need for the editing project and for the customization project are a computer with a working web browser. If you want to learn to use Git, it'll take a little bit longer because we'll help you set up Git on your computer. And going through the Git learning mission ahead of time will help!
