THE VOICES OF IRIS DEPEND ON YOU!
It's just that simple.
All IRIS listeners live with a disability. Most are seniors living on a fixed income. Though our listeners contribute as much as they can, the daily costs of transmission, equipment and programming are greater than listener donations alone can sustain.
We are so proud that we continue to provide all IRIS equipment and services to our listeners at no cost to them.
For years, IRIS operations were supported by federal dollars. Like so many organizations, that type of funding no longer exists. But the need for our services is still there - and growing. For the first time, we are funded entirely by contributions. We now look to the communities we serve to keep the Voices of IRIS on the air to over 3,000 listeners each day.
