#KeeperoftheDay – The ARChive of Contemporary Music (ARC)

ARC, a nonprofit archive/music library/research library, with the largest popular music collection in the world, is running a GoFundMe campaign to keep the collection in NYC, where they’ve been since 1985.

Our Independence is important to us. We operate without any City, State or Federal funds. We cherish the ability to work on projects of choice and free from restrictions or the dependence on governmental/taxpayer support. Our once affordable rent on White Street has skyrocketed to $21,000 a month, making it increasingly difficult for a pure research organization to survive in Lower Manhattan. Our home is in New York and we would love to stay here.

Our simple goal is to guarantee that the world’s musical heritage is preserved for future generations to study and enjoy.
