Double your Impact November 29th!

100 Radios Logo

Our Goal = 100 Radios in One Day

From 12:00AM to 11:59PM on November 29th, a generous donor will match your donation!

Though we average about 100 radios per year, we've already reached 170 this year.

We provide custom radios that only receive the IRIS signal. Listeners hear newspapers and other print publications read aloud by volunteers 24/7. All equipment and services are provided to our listeners


Your $30 Donation buys 1 IRIS receiver!


From the front page to grocery ads to obituaries - IRIS provides access to information our listeners simply can't get anywhere else. Watch 99-year old Gretchen's reaction to hearing the volunteer Voices of IRIS read the newspaper to her for the first time.

Your gift enables Iowans with disabilities continuous access to their local newspapers and over 50 local and national publications While many of our listeners have visual impairments, others have difficulty simply holding or turning the page. Regardless of the disability, your gift means that we can continue to offer our services and equipment to more than 3,000 Iowa listeners at no cost to them.
