NC Museum seeks money for film history exhibit

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The North Carolina Museum of History is turning to a crowd funding site to raise $25,000 for an exhibit about North Carolina's film history.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported (http://bit.ly/16gjExX) that the museum is using the Indiegogo.com site to raise the money for an exhibit titled "Starring North Carolina!" The exhibit opens in November 2014.

The campaign ends Nov. 29. If the museum does not meet its goal by then, it keeps the money that it did raise through tax-deductible donations. The $25,000 would not pay for the entire exhibit.

The museum received just over $4 million from the state budget for the current fiscal year. All but $231,000 goes to salaries, benefits and other personnel costs. The rest of its money comes from donors and sponsors.
