Anne Glasser ArellaA Message from Anne Brennan

It’s all about the next 30 years and the board, staff, listeners and our faithful volunteers are counting on the generosity of everyone to help us continue to “breathe words into your life.”

TRRS co-founder and visionary, Ben Eason, passed away in 2006.  Ben, who was fully sighted, became blind due to an accident in his youth.  Thanks to his “vision” while he was living, and his legacy giving that helped to create an endowment and also annually supports TRRS through the Ben Eason Fund at the Triangle Community Foundation, TRRS broadcasts are available to a growing audience of listeners.

With a theme of New Visions for 2013, the plans are to celebrate our 30th anniversary of traditional reading service and to grow the reading service in new and meaningful ways.

TRRS is a 24/7 radio reading service with a staff of two.  May Tran is our full-time Executive Director, and yours truly works part-time to friend raise and fundraise to support our annual budget and get the word out about this wonderful reading service.

Our office is located at 211 E. Six Forks Rd, Suite 103.  We invite anyone reading this message to come to TRRS and tour our studio and learn about the ways in which you can help support our vital mission to connect people that are blind or have “print disabilities” to each other, their families and communities by delivering news, information, entertainment and special programs using the latest audio technology.

There are several ways in which you can support the continued operation of TRRS.  All contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law, as we are a registered 501(c) 3 non-profit with EIN # 58-1528968.

First, you can make a cash donation in one of several ways.

You can learn more about our financials via

Second, you can become a Broadcast Sponsor of one or more of our broadcasts.

As a Broadcast Sponsor you’ll receive a 15-second acknowledgment in one of our broadcasts each week.  For $750 to $1500, your acknowledgment will be read at least twice a week for an entire year.  Your company or faith community logo (or your name, if you would like) will be added to the website.  It’s a win-win for advertising as well as supporting!

To become a Broadcast Sponsor, please call me at 919-832-5138 for more information or to arrange your sponsorship details (such as the text we will read about you during the broadcast).

Thank you for the opportunity to share my passion for the Triangle Radio Reading Service and to invite your support.

No gift is too small.  All gifts are welcome!  Annual gifts, sustaining member gifts, and planned gifts and sponsorships are invaluable!
