Wikipedia Asking For Funds And Balance Sheet

Upon visiting Wikipedia today there were messages across the site asking for donations to keep it free. As you can see, you end up getting this message on every page:


For curiosity I decided to look at the organization’s balance sheet as you can see here:


Unless I am reading this wrong this states that the organization has over $27 million in cash. It definitely makes me wonder why they would need more money at this point. Would you be inclined to donate more knowing these figures? It makes me think more personally since it is a non-profit organization.

Although just like any other financial management situations you shouldn’t only worry about money right when you need it. Trickier situation when it comes to a charity scenario huh?
