Ways You Can Help

TRRS depends entirely on financial contributions from local governments, United Way, civic organizations, and individuals like you.  As TRRS is not available through an ordinary FM radio, listeners are loaned specially tuned receivers that cost TRRS about $25 each.  They are provided free of charge to those living in the broadcast area, although some listeners contribute as they are financially able.  You can help us in the following ways:

Tell TRRS about friends and family members who could benefit from the Reading Service.  Also tell your friends, neighbors and associates about this worthwhile program and encourage them to support it with their time, talent, and donations. Become a TRRS volunteer.  Assist with on-air reading, engineering, scheduling, fund raising, public outreach, and other projects.  Training programs are offered to all volunteers.  Read about our volunteers. Become a TRRS supporter.  A $100 donation will purchase 4 special TRRS receivers for 4 listeners.  An underwriting donation supports our daily operations.  See Ways to Donate, or donate now via:
