Help us to create a world in which every single human being can share in the sum of all knowledge.

Wikimedia UK is the national charity for the global Wikimedia movement. We work with the Wikimedia Projects such as Wikipedia to enable people and organisations to contribute to a shared understanding of the world through the democratic creation, distribution and consumption of knowledge.

You can support Wikimedia UK quickly and easily online by becoming a regular donor via direct debit. Please contact us on 0203 372 0760 or by email at



Making a monthly donation, however small, is one of the best ways that you can support our work. Setting up a direct debit today will help us to achieve our mission to support and advocate for the development of open knowledge, working in partnership with volunteers, the cultural and education sectors and other organisations to make knowledge available, usable and reusable online.

Please note that by donating to Wikimedia UK you are consenting to us keeping and using the information you provide. This is in accordance with our Data Protection Policy.



You can support Wikimedia UK by sending a cheque to FREEPOST WIKIPEDIA (you will not need to pay for postage). Thank you for your support of open knowledge.

Gift Aid means we can claim an extra 25% of the value of your donations back from the government, if you are a UK taxpayer. It means your gifts can go even further to supporting open knowledge. Call us on 0203 372 0760 to learn more.


Why do we need your email address? 

A very high proportion of gifts we receive are made online. If you can put the same email address in this form as you used when making a donation (e.g. the email address associated with your PayPal account) it makes it much easier for us to match declarations to gifts.

Higher Rate Tax Payers

Don't forget that if you pay Income Tax at the higher rate you are likely to be able to claim further tax relief on your donations, via your tax return. If you're in any doubt please speak to your tax advisor.
