Relationship between Wikimedia and Amazon.


Amazon donated $1 million to the Wikimedia Endowment in September 2018,[1] and again in October 2019[2] and September 2020[3]. The Wikimedia Foundation also accepts donations via Amazon Pay.[4]


Amazon's Alexa makes use of Wikipedia articles.

In July 2017, Amazon's compliance with Wikipedia's Creative Commons licensing attribution requirement was discussed on the Wikimedia-l mailing list.[5] The WMF's Director of Strategic Partnerships, Adele Vrana, contacted Amazon regarding this.[6]

Alexa Donations supports the WMF, allowing users to say "Alexa, donate to Wikipedia" to donate.

Mechanical TurkEdit

Amazon's Mechanical Turk is frequently used in Wikimedia Research efforts.

Amazon Web ServicesEdit
