The Mattina R. Proctor Foundation has awarded the National Recording Preservation Foundation a $5,000 grant for the preservation of culturally-significant recordings from Maine, with a special emphasis on the mid-coastal region.
Mattina R. Proctor (1926-2005) was a compassionate philanthropist from Camden, Maine and Boston, who championed and funded many worthwhile projects to benefit the poor and ill, protect the environment and bring fine music and arts to the people.
The NRPF is preparing the call for proposals for Maine-focused audio preservation projects in the near future. Subscribe to our mailing list to be alerted or to receive periodic information on our efforts.
The National Recording Preservation Foundation (NRPF), a federally chartered corporation, is an independent, charitable organization. The NRPF works across the United States to foster awareness of the diverse perspectives and communities documented in audio, to support the preservation of historical and at-risk audio collections, and to coordinate resources for the digital preservation of audio recordings. The NRPF was created by the U.S. Congress by the National Recording Preservation Act of 2000 (Pub. L. 106-474) and was duly incorporated by the Library of Congress as a 501(c)3 organization in 2010.
