The Davis Wiki project is a community, non-profit effort to compile the undefined elements of everything Davis. Everyone can contribute and edit content — it is no one person or group's site. With this in mind, we intend to keep Davis Wiki completely free and, equally importantly, free from banner ads and other advertising. Forever. The only page that will ever mention our generous sponsors by name is this page.


Regardless of intentions, running a web site is not a free enterprise. So we ask — if you enjoy the site and want to help keep it running for as long as possible — that you make a contribution.

We are an educational and charitable 501(c)3 organization. This means your contributions are tax deductible.

Donate online with PayPal using your Credit/Debit card or your PayPal account:

Please indicate if you'd like a receipt for tax purposes! If you'd like to deduct the contribution from your taxes you'll want a receipt.

To donate via check: Make your check payable to "Wiki Spot" (our parent organization) and mail to this address:

Wiki Spot
PO Box 401044
San Francisco, CA 94140-1044

If you donate via check, please send an email to <daviswiki AT gmail DOT com> to let us know so we can keep track of donations as they come in. If you don't want to be thanked publicly or have any other special instructions, please say so in your email. Please indicate if you'd like a receipt for tax purposes! If you'd like to deduct the contribution from your taxes you'll want a receipt. Give us an email address to send your receipt to.
