Jack White has donated $200,000 to the National Recording Preservation Foundation to help set the organization into action. According to Billboard, Jack is on the board of directors for the non-profit which was "established to preserve and make accessible the recorded sounds of the United States."
The group's executive director, Gerald Seligman, called Jack's gift a "game changer" and added that the 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." Chairman of the board, Sam Brylawski, released a statement saying he hopes "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."
