The Audio Preservation Fund is not currently accepting donations.

We are currently moving locations, which means we are packing up and cannot accommodate any new materials at this time. We kindly ask that you wait to send donations until after this transitional period. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Thank you for understanding!

This is why we exist.

Help us acquire the music and spoken word recordings from various cultures around the world. The greatest way you can contribute to our cause is to contribute sound recordings in need of preservation. Your contribution will go very far toward the preservation of the world's recorded heritage.

We will accept any sound recordings you are willing to donate. The recordings will be processed by the Audio Preservation Fund and then made available for donation to any of our Partners. If the recording has already been preserved, we will place it in one of our other Programs. Should it best be suited for resale, we will find a good home for the recording and its sale will contribute funds for the Audio Preservation Fund that will go toward the preservation of another recording.

And because we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the value of your recording or recordings can be used as a tax deduction on your year-end tax return.

Please Contact Us right away if you have a single recording, a collection of recordings, or know of someone else with recordings ready to be donated.
