In the 1880s, publisher Joseph Pulitzer inspired thousands to support the construction of Lady Liberty’s pedestal in exchange for printing the names of donors in his newspaper in what could be considered America’s first crowdfunding campaign. More than 120,000 donors responded, some giving just a few pennies, and the funds were secured within months to complete the pedestal and in order to unveil the Statue of Liberty in 1886.
From now until August 4, 2018, in recognition of this legacy, The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation has launched a similar campaign – For Lady Liberty – to help build the new Statue of Liberty Museum. Updated for the digital age, the month-long campaign is being held on Indiegogo, a leading online crowdfunding platform.
Just as Pulitzer publicly recognized those who gave to his campaign, contributors to the Statue of Liberty Museum crowdfunding campaign will be acknowledged by the Foundation in a variety of ways, including via social media. Based on contribution levels, supporters can select from a variety of perks that will be unveiled throughout the campaign. We hope you participate in our crowdfunding campaign and join the conversation by using #ForLadyLiberty.
