Thank you for your email and interest in supporting free knowledge. While the Wikimedia Foundation does not have a local bank account in your country, we do have two accounts that accept international transfers: https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Ways_to_Give/en#Bank_transfer
Wikimedia Foundation Citibank 590 Market Street San Francisco, US 94104 415-982-2960
International SWIFT code CITIUS33 A/C# 203129580
European Union Bank
Wikimedia Foundation J.P. Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., London 25 Bank Street Canary Wharf London E14 5JP
Account number: IBAN GB49CHAS60924241034730 BIC CHASGB2L
A couple of things to keep in mind when making an international transfer:
1. The Wikimedia Foundation attempts to receive funds in your currency, but this is not always possible due to international and bank regulations.
2. The Foundation does not charge a transfer fee for donations, but this is something that your local bank may initiate.
We highly recommend checking with your local bank before initiating a transfer to make sure you understand any charges that you may incur by making a donation to Wikimedia. Thank you again for your support, and please feel free to contact us with any further questions.
