different ways to give.
There are so many ways to give: remember a loved one, attend an event, organize a fundraising event with your friends. It's only through your generosity that CRIS provides service to folks in our community who are blind or disabled and unable to read.

From making a donation, becoming an event sponsor or program underwriter, or contributing to the CRIS Radio endowment, there are many ways to give and ensure that CRIS listeners will continue to have the same type of access to newspapers and magazines that most of us take for granted. Thanks to the support of individuals, private foundations and businesses, CRIS informs, educates and empowers people who are disabled by offering them knowledge that they would otherwise not have access to.

The impact of CRIS programs – CRIS Radio, CRISKids, CRIS en Español and CRISAccess – are lasting and contribute to the development of a more self-sufficient and well-informed audience who would not otherwise have the ease of access to the current news, information and classroom materials that CRIS provides.

On behalf of CRIS Board of Directors, staff, volunteers and listeners, please know we are very grateful to our donors for their support. Together, we can create a lifeline to the community and the world for those who are unable to read printed material.

Make a secure online donation by clicking the PayPal link on the top of the page, or mail your gift, made out to CRIS Radio, to:
