This year the WikEM team organized the OpenEM Foundation to help support the technical costs and finances of running the wiki and mobile applications. Although the content will always remain free to the world, the mobile development, hosting, and the technical work to grow and improve the wiki, requires a significant amount of time and money. Everyone on our team volunteers their skills to support free and open access to medical education, but WikEM would not be possible without your financial support.
We have always been focused on building a longterm sustainable project maintained by the EM community. Regardless of where you practice medicine, we want to supply you with the tools to bring up-to-date medical knowledge to your patient’s bedside.
Part of that goal requires establishing solid financial support. If every one of our users donated $1 per month we could sustain the current infrastructure and technology. To help with growth we have recurring donations at greater amounts as well.
Thank you for helping make WikEM a fantastic resource for resident and continued education of EM providers worldwide.
