The Wikimedia Foundation was created to ensure that Wikipedia was reserved as a nonprofit entity with respect for community governance and conducted in the public interest and in the public spirit. And here to tell us how they raise the bucks to pay the bills and support their community is Lisa Seitz-Gruwell, chief revenue officer of the Wikimedia Foundation.
When I first heard of the Wikimedia Foundation, I wasn’t exactly sure what it was. So, I did what I frequently do when I want to learn more about something, I went to Wikipedia to find out.
And another way to have found out would have been to speak with Katherine Maher, the chief executive officer and executive director of the Wikimedia Foundation, which we will do right now.
