Where wikipedia donations really go

As most of us, I can not imagine world without Wikipedia. And I have been proud to have donated to it’s cause both in content and in monetary contributions.
Recently I have stumbled upon an article, in which Wikipedia is being blamed for utilization of donations for travel, entertainment, and Sue Gardner’s (and now Lila Tretikov’s) high salary. Basically not directly related to Wikipedia itself at all.

Personally, I don’t care how this money is being spent: Wikipedia is a place to go for me and will remain in foreseible future. I will, however, refrain from donations.
