$200K National Recording Preservation Foundation donation

Donation

White donates $200,000 to help launch the National Recording Preservation Foundation. The donation allows the foundation to start awarding grants and debut its National Recording Preservation Plan. Chairman Brylawski:

With its national plan, the Library of Congress has laid the groundwork for the long-term preservation of our audio history but the challenges to achieving this at a significant scale are daunting. I hope that Mr. White’s extraordinarily generous donation inspires many others, especially those in the recording business — record companies, artists, songwriters, and others — to follow his lead to help ensure that we are able to preserve and make accessible recent and historical recordings at risk of loss.
