For over 10 years, we've served communities without any advertising, spammy corporate partnerships or user-tracking spyware. We're a small nonprofit supported by donations from people like you. And right now, we need your help.
To stay free and make sure the site continues to run well into the future, our goal is to raise $12k for the year. This covers our absolute core hosting, infrastructure and legal expenses. We must raise this amount to ensure that the lights always stay on. If everyone reading this message donated $1, our fundraiser would be over in an hour!
Make a small donation ($3 goes a long way!) and keep us free forever:
What if there was somewhere you could go to learn all about where you live? A place to learn about your neighborhoods, about your local parks, about being a parent in your city, about history, politics – anything and everything useful and beautiful about your community. With LocalWiki, everybody has a way to share and learn about where they live.
Whether it's knowing about butterfly corridors or the history of a local beach, everyone holds a piece of the puzzle of what it's like to live in their community. And unlike a news site or a blog, anyone can add and modify LocalWiki pages. LocalWiki lets you and your neighbors tell the story of your community, together.
Like a park or a public library, LocalWiki is a public good. LocalWiki is free for anyone to read, copy and reuse for any purpose, and the backend code powering LocalWiki is open-source. We do not run any advertisements, and we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. You can donate to support LocalWiki here.
LocalWiki represents a free, universally-accessible collection of the world's local knowledge upon which we hope countless civic and locally-relevant applications will be built. Our geospatially-aware, read-write API makes it easy to integrate LocalWiki with your application, or to import useful local data from elsewhere!
