|Assunto:||added to vs. contributed to|
I see no difference in that context.
To add and to contribute are not always interchangeable, but often they are. One of the main differences between contribute and add is that contribute implies that the subject is acting with other agents. I can add to a soup by putting an onion in it. (There is no hint as to whether I am making the soup alone or with others.) I can contribute to a soup by putting an onion into it if someone else has also put something into the soup.
