"Amazon to Help Advance Free Knowledge for All with New $1 Million Gift to the Wikimedia Endowment"

The Wikimedia Foundation has released "Amazon to Help Advance Free Knowledge for All with New $1 Million Gift to the Wikimedia Endowment."

Here's an excerpt:

We are pleased to announce a new $1 million gift to the Wikimedia Endowment from Amazon to support greater access to information for everyone. This is Amazon’s second gift to the Wikimedia Endowment, a permanent fund dedicated to ensuring the long-term sustainability of Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia free knowledge projects. . . .

Since the launch of the Endowment in January 2016, the campaign has raised over $42 million from generous individuals, foundations, and corporations. Amazon’s support provides additional momentum to the Wikimedia Endowment campaign and to our belief that free knowledge must be safeguarded and available to anyone, anywhere.
