About Wikimedia Nederland

The Vereniging Wikimedia Nederland has as goal to collect, record and distribute all free accessible information.* We work closely together with the volunteers of the Wikimedia Projects and the Wikimedia Foundation, with them we also undertake and organize activities.

About the Wikimedia Foundation

The Wikimedia Foundation is a non-profit organization registered in the USA, hosting websites known as the "Wikimedia projects", including Wikipedia and Wikinews, as well as Meta-Wiki. The Wikimedia Foundation is governed by Board of Trustees. Since January 2007, the Wikimedia Foundation has its office in San Francisco. Its former headquarters in St. Petersburg, Florida was closed on January 31, 2007.
