Jack White is once again opening his wallet for a good cause.  The National Recording Preservation Foundation announced Monday that the rocker donated 200-thousand dollars, which is a move the organization's executive director, Gerald Seligman, calls a "game changer." 

The NRPF is an independent, non-profit charitable corporation established by the U.S. Congress that aims to preserve "America's unparalleled radio, music, and recorded sound heritage."  Seligman says White's contribution means the Foundation can finally get "up and running."  In addition to his monetary donation, White also serves on the NRPF Board of Directors along with award-winning producer T-Bone Burnett, Sub Pop Records co-founder Jonathan Poneman, and others. 

This isn't the first time White has doled out some cash to help preserve music history.  Just last month he gave Detroit's Masonic Temple 142-thousand dollars to help save the iconic venue from foreclosure.
