[b]It's a First! USSRC Launches 60-Day Crowdfunding Campaign for New Exhibit[/b]
The U.S. Space & Rocket Center Foundation recently launched a fundraising campaign on Indiegogo, an international crowdfunding site, to raise $70,000 to begin installation of a Gulfstream II (G-II) Shuttle Training Aircraft (STA) in Rocket Center’s Shuttle Park. This marks the first time the Center has used crowdfunding in a fundraising campaign and we need your help to make it successful!
The G-II aircraft, which bears the tail number N945NA, will be a museum exhibition – to include access to the interior of the aircraft – and an immersive classroom for our nearly 600,000 annual visitors and for trainees in our Space Camp, Aviation Challenge Camp and Robotics Camp STEM education programs. The project is segmented into two major phases, with phase two including plans for a large outdoor amphitheater. The current Indiegogo campaign will fund a portion of phase one and will pay for site preparation and onsite installation of the aircraft, which is currently being housed at Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport.
Every donation is helpful! Give $5 or $5,000 and help us land this authentic NASA Shuttle Training Aircraft at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center! For more information about the aircraft, the fundraising project and the free perks that come with each donation, click here!
