RTBS relies on hundreds of people every year to provide nonstop programming to those who need it. We are always happy to accept the help of volunteers and donors. Sometimes, the most help a person can be is simply referring someone to the program. Whatever you are able to do, we sincerely appreciate the involvement!

Volunteers are what make RTBS possible. Our volunteers come from a wide range of backgrounds, being of diverse occupations, ages, and cultures. Many enjoy the unique joy of being on radio and have even developed their own fan base. Though they are all very humble, they truly are some of the best people around.
If you would be interested in volunteering, please complete the Volunteer Info Form. Many individuals come prepared with what they want to read, others choose it when the arrive. Some even write their own original content! If you have ever had the desire to be on radio or think you are a good storyteller, don’t hesitate to contact us!
Unfortunately, someone has to pay the bills. RTBS is not a United Way agency and relies heavily on contributions such as yours for funding needs. In fact, friends like you provide a substantial part of operating dollars. Your tax-deductible gift will enable us to continue to serve thousands of persons whose daily lives are enhanced by our services.

Sometimes, the most helpful thing a person can do is spreading the word. RTBS has grown a lot in the past 30 years, but we still have a long way to go. The 2,500 loaned radios only represent a small portion of the 33,000+ people in Nebraska who would qualify for our services. That means a lot of people probably don’t know about what we offer. Getting in touch with those who need a companion is the most important concern of RTBS, and any individual who helps us met this goal truly is a great person.
