Ways to Donate


It is because of the support Audio-Reader has received since 1971 that has allowed us to become an award-winning, and one of the premier, audio information services in the country. Thousands of listeners have come to depend on Audio-Reader providing these vital services every single day. And now, more than ever, Audio-Reader counts on support from friends like you to continue providing these services.

"Blindness thre me into the dark ages. I used to live an active life and I didn't know how to stay in touch with the world. Finding Audio-Reader was life-giving to me! It is an avenue for me to stay in touch with the world. I have been resuscitated and I honestly don't know what I'd be doing without it." - Teresa B., Audio-Reader Listener
