Archive Project Moves to Carver Federal Savings Bank
In March, the Archive Project moved a majority of its funds to a new bank. Capping off a diligence effort going back several months, the Archive Project opened an account at Carver Federal Savings Bank. Founded in 1948 to serve African American communities with limited access to mainstream financial services, Carver Federal Savings Bank is the nation’s largest Black-managed bank. NYPAP is glad to support an institution committed to its own history and the community it serves.
