Dear Internet Archive Community,
We need your help to ensure that anyone curious enough to seek knowledge will be able to find it here, for free. We’re an independent, non-profit website that the entire world depends on.
We are powered by gifts averaging $45.00. If everyone who uses the Internet Archive donates just $5, we can keep offering these services for free and ad-free. That’s right, for the price of a paperback, you can sustain a library the whole world trusts. If the Internet Archive is useful to you, please donate today!
Did you know:
- We’ve fixed 11 million broken links in Wikipedia using the Wayback Machine?
- You can listen to recordings of 200,000 live concerts from 7,800 bands—all for free?
- Readers are borrowing 17,500 books per day with complete reader privacy?
The key is to keep improving—and to keep it free.
The Internet Archive has only 150 staff but runs one of the top websites in the world. Reader privacy is very important to us, so we never track you. We don’t accept ads. But we still need to pay for servers, staff and rent.
The Internet Archive is a bargain, but we still need your help.
If you find our site useful, please consider chipping in $5, $25, $50 or whatever you can afford to keep the Internet Archive going in 2020. I promise you, it will be money well spent.
