While this wiki was unsuccessful in achieving its original goals, a core group of writers have continued writing articles in the wiki that we believe are useful, and which for various reasons could not be written in Wikipedia.  After the probably closeout of Citizendium as a public project, on or about Sept. 30, 2020, we hope to keep the wiki running by a combination of donations and subscriptions.

We have set up a '''PayPal''' account to receive and accumulate your donations. You do not, however, actually need a PayPal account of your own—credit cards are accepted. When you get to the Donate page, look down towards the bottom of that page to find the link to make a credit-card payment without using PayPal.

Thank you!    

Donations by electronic Bill Pay

If you would prefer to set up an automatic, recurring transfer directly into the Citizendium account, please contact Pat Palmer via email at pgpalmer AT gmail.com. This option is especially helpful, as it avoids the nearly 3% fees incurred on donations made by Paypal or credit card.

How our funds are used

Donated funds will be used for the following:

  • server costs ($74.95 monthly as of August 2020)
  • domain registrar costs (about $300 every five years, last paid in July 2020)
  • occasional business expenses such as membership ads for online media or credit card/Paypal commissions

All spending will be shown on the monthly financial report. There are no salaries, as this is an all-volunteer operation. If in the future we decide to shut down, any leftover funds will be donated to the Internet Archive.

Notes

  1. N.B. At this time, Citizendium is not organized as a 501(c) non-profit (though operating like one), and your contributions will not be income tax deductible.
