Jack White has donated $200,000 to the National Recording Preservation Foundation – a non-profit charitable corporation established by the U.S. Congress to support archives, libraries, cultural institutions and others committed to preserving America’s history of radio, music and recorded sound.
Executive Director Gerald Seligman calls the donation a “game changer,” stating that White’s donation is “our first and therefore provides the welcome opportunity to go from talk about the needs and priorities of audio preservation to concerted action. With this contribution we can now put up our basic structure, begin enacting the preservation plan – and give out our first grants. We’re committed to doing that right away, and certainly within the coming months.”
