WMF is regularly disclosing information about the MILLIONS of dollars 
raised by donations.

Regularly is probably about every minute or so.

Please check http://fundraising.wikimedia.org/

There is history of donations since january 2006.
Prior data may be found in audited financial statements for the past 3 
years, available here: http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Finance_report

The donation website was set up end of 2006. It is a huge improvement 
over past reporting system.
