Dear Transom Visitor,

If you’re reading this, you probably use Transom. You know it’s free to everyone, has no advertising or underwriting, and for 17 years has been committed to helping people tell their own stories guided by the mission of public media. We work hard to be useful and inspiring. We’re the first website ever to win its own Peabody Award. For testimony about Transom, check out the video below, but you probably already know all that.

So, to the point . . .

A portion of our funding comes from the National Endowment for the Arts (bless them) and the rest comes from YOU, the users of Transom. This is our year-end appeal, when we count on your support to keep going. Transom keeps a lean budget, but we do need to keep the festive lights on. Can you help us?

Thank you and may all your audio dreams come true…

-Jay Allison

Kind Words About Transom

The folks at Transom have taken the time to gather the collective knowledge of everyone in public radio and created this font of wisdom that people have benefited from for years and will continue to benefit from. It’s a national treasure.
– Dave Isay, StoryCorps

Transom provides something that is incredibly beautiful and big hearted in a way that I think public radio is big hearted. It’s creating community and giving people the tools to do things that we all love to do. It’s an incredibly important place for this community.
– Alix Spiegel, Invisibilia

Any question I have about radio, I start with Transom. Anyone who asks me about how to get into radio or get better at radio, I send them to Transom. Transom is the combination of well-stocked public library and great community center that radio needed 15 years ago and needs even more today.
