Smithsonian Shares Crowdfunding Stats

The Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. is a very happy crowdfunder and has shared its crowdfunding statistics with the public.

The Museum, with the help of Kickstarter, crowdfunded two campaigns, one to save Neil Armstrong’s (first moon walker) space suit and the other to save Dorothy’s ruby red shoes.

9, 477 people donated to the suit, 6,451 donated to the shoes, while 461 gave to both.

And about 45.5% of the donors gave between $25 -$99 while 11% gave between $100-$10,000.
