Heroes Wiki's partnership with NBC (which includes running their advertisements) is the primary source of revenue for the site. No member (including administrators) receives any personal profit from advertising revenue. Revenue generated from advertisements is used for the following purposes:
- Donations to charitable organizations
- Offset advertising, hosting, and hardware costs involved in running the site
- Support future expansion of the site
Charitable organizations Heroes Wiki has donated to include the following:
- Pediatric Epilepsy Foundation sponsored by Greg Grunberg
- National Walk for Epilepsy sponsored by Greg Grunberg
- Give-Life Foundation sponsored by Zachary Quinto
- The Brain Aneurysm Foundation in honor of Tim Susco
- One Laptop Per Child sponsored by Masi Oka
If you are aware of other charitable organizations being sponsored by people involved with Heroes then feel free to suggest them on the discussion page and we will try to allocate a future donation to that organization.
While blocking advertisements is becoming easier by the day, I'd like to ask that visitors to please not block the advertisements here at Heroes Wiki. Even if you do not click on any ads that you find interesting revenue is generated sometimes simply by allowing the ad to load. So even if you never click on ads you are helping Heroes Wiki by not blocking them. If your ad blocker is blocking ads here by default, please lend us a hand and have your ad blocker allow ads from this site. As stated above the revenue from advertising is going to a good cause, so I'd like to ask people to please help contribute by not blocking ads here. Thanks!
