Jack White Donates $200,000 to Launch the National Recording Preservation

The official public launch of the National Recording Preservation Foundation was made possible by a $200,000 inaugural gift from Jack White.

This hefty sum allows the foundation to begin work on the Nation Recording Preservation Plan to organize and preserve the radio, music, and recorded sound history in the United States.

The foundation is a component of the National Recording Preservation Act and was chartered in 2010 as a nonprofit organization authorized to fundraise for libraries, archives, and cultural institutions.
