This inclusion may come as a surprise! Your response to seeing it on the list was probably, “Oh wow!” A non-profit website, Wikipedia is an online library that puts well-founded data at the world’s fingertips. Its information is donated by unnamed, online sources. Wikipedia is mainly funded with monetary gifts from its readers around the world.
