Wikipedia has found a welcome benefactor for its annual fundraising effort, with the foundation created by Google co-founder Sergey Brin and his wife Anne Wojcicki donating $500,000 towards its $28.3 million budget goal. The $500,000 comes in the form of a grant from the Brin Wojcicki Foundation to the Wikimedia Foundation, and follows a $2 million donation from Google to Wikimedia in 2010. Wikipedia’s fundraising towards its planned annual spending goal continues through January 2012.
