Where your donation goes
Technology: We preserve 750 million Web pages per week! We’ve saved 35 petabytes (that’s 35,000,000,000,000,000 bytes) of data. That takes a lot of servers, bandwidth and power. The cost of storing information in our data centers is a fraction of the cost of Amazon Cloud.
Staff: Most top websites employ huge staffs. We employ 150 people around the world—engineers, archivists, librarians and book scanners. Most of our staff could be making much more at a company driven by profit, but they choose to work for a nonprofit powered by a huge mission.
Projects: This year we are launching a new initiative, Open Libraries, to digitize millions of books—the equivalent of a great modern urban library—and make them available to a billion people. Help us!
