In 2020 the Internet Archive has seen unprecedented use—and we need your help. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, our bandwidth demand skyrocketed. Right now we’re getting over 1.1 million daily unique visitors and storing 60 petabytes of data. We build and maintain all our own systems, but we don’t charge for access, sell user information, or run ads. Instead, we rely on individual generosity to fund our infrastructure.
Right now, we have a 2-to-1 Matching Gift Campaign, tripling the impact of every donation. If you find all these bits and bytes useful, please chip in.
