  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.
