Today we launch our End-of-Year Campaign. Once a year, I ask all of you to keep the Internet Archive going and growing stronger. Please help us reach our goal of raising $1.5 million by the end of the year. Your support will help pay for servers, bandwidth and our dedicated staff.
I founded the Internet Archive as a non-profit with a huge goal: to give everyone access to all knowledge—the books, web pages, audio, television and software of our shared human culture. Forever.
Together we are building the digital library of the future. A place where we can all go to learn and explore.
At the Internet Archive, we’ve preserved 430 billion web pages. People download 20 million books on our site each month. We get more visitors in a year than most libraries do in a lifetime. The key is to keep improving—and to keep it free. That’s where you can help us.
For the cost of buying a book, you can make a book permanently available for the next generation. Please consider donating $10, $25, $50 or whatever you can afford to support the Internet Archive before the end of this year. It’s is a small amount to inform millions. Help us do more. I promise you, it’s money well spent.
