Kickstarter to provide more funding for arts than NEA

Kickstarter is having an amazing year, even by the standards of other white hot Web startup companies, and more is yet to come.

(The Start-up) is on track to distribute over $150 million dollars to its users’ projects in 2012, or more than entire fiscal year 2012 budget for the National Endowment of the Arts (NEA), which was $146 million.

“Our entire lifetime funding is about $150 million,” said Strickler, “But $99 million was pledged last year alone.”
