Successful Crowdfunding for the Sigmund Freud Museum 2020
Our crowd funding campaign at wemakeit.com for the renovation and reorganization of the Sigmund Freud Museum turned out as a big success: we could gain supporters nationally and internationally for the project SIGMUND FREUD MUSEUM 2020 – a total of 85,504 euros was raised by contributions from 306 donors.
The whole team of the Sigmund Freud Museum says thank you for this powerful support!
This success marks another important step on the path to reaching the sum necessaryfor renovating and enlarging the museum by 2020: currently, we are in need of another 700,000 euros to reach the project total of 3.94 milion euros.
