LocalWiki project raises over $25,000

Volunteers from DavisWiki, such as Nick Schmalenberger above, tabled at the Davis Farmers Market to raise money for the LocalWiki project pledge drive, which ended Sept. 13.

More than 427 donors raised a total of $26,324 for the creation of enhanced wiki software. The Knight News Challenge awarded the LocalWiki project with a grant for $350,000 to help other communities create their own local wiki-sites. The grant was contingent on the project successfully raising $25,000.
