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.
