  • How does Wikipedia manage financially? It doesn't cost that much to run. Last year we spent around $1.5 million, and the year before that $750,000. The vast majority comes from public donations of between $50 to $100. Most costs go on expanding expensive physical hardware, the servers that host the site. http://www.newscientist.com/channel/opinion/mg19325896.300

  • Pimpin'
  • It solicits donations from it's users.
  • The money is gathered from people who visit their site, frequent users are more likely to donate compared to a first-time visitor who would be alienated by a site asking for a donation. In a very eloquent and unintruding manner they ask for a donation and there is also a promise of the visitors being listed as a donator in a special page which is updated frequently. According to modern psychology studies, depending on how useful a website has been to a person (The end user), such is the amount that the person will feel obliged to give in return as to not self-critisize themselves as being ungiving. Donating for a good cause is something good.
