Oklahoma astronaut museum announces 'Legacy Campaign' for more space

Twenty five years after it was founded, an astronaut's hometown museum is looking to expand – just in time to mark a half century since its namesake's historic flight to the moon.

The Stafford Air & Space Museum, named for Gemini and Apollo astronaut Thomas Stafford, announced its "Legacy Campaign," a major fund-raising effort to grow its facilities by more than 18,000 square feet (1,670 sq. meters). The museum, located in Weatherford, Oklahoma, aims to have the first phase of the expansion completed in time to host a celebration for the 50th anniversary of Stafford's Apollo 10 mission in May 2019.

Having visited the museum a few months ago, I'm eager to make a pledge. Any specific instructions yet on how to contribute?

Thanks for making us aware of this worthwhile opportunity.

Donations are now being accepted through the Stafford Museum website:
The Legacy Campaign thrives through the generosity of the donors who invest in our mission. We invite you to join the museum in this endeavor and leave your legacy.

Your one time or recurring donation moves the museum closer to achieving its campaign goal for the expansion project and the ability to preserve the legacy of Tom Stafford and those who participate in this campaign, and also to educate and inspire future generations.

I suspect the ticker function isn't working properly because it says $15 raised to date from 1 backer. I wonder how far along they've come in the last couple weeks.
