Dear Linguists,

We would like to start this week with an update on Fund Drive 2006. 

So far we have raised $15,768, and we are $37,164 away from our
goal. This is a great start!  Dear Subscribers, you do love us! If you
enjoy your time on our cruise ship, please make a donation to keep us
afloat. To donate now, visit:

This week we are featuring a new performance by Terry the Singing
Lumberjack, who will be presenting another version of our Fund Drive
song. We invite all of you to add to the song, and next week we'll
replace some of the current song lyrics with the best subscriber
submissions! The deadline for these submissions is April 2nd.

If you donate $1000 or more, Terry will cut a special CD containing
your own creative submissions, and LINGUIST List will mail it directly
to you! So submit your donation and send us your version of the song
by April 14th to receive this special CD from Terry. You can do all
this on our cruise page:

The terrific LEXICON: Game without Rules is on right now. See how far

As more of you donate, we will be able to show more Hometown Tours of

Have a wonderful week!

Subject: How to donate...

This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $52,932. This money will go
to help keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors
for the coming year.

There are many ways to donate to LINGUIST!

You can donate right now using our secure credit card form.

Alternatively you can also pledge right now and pay later.

For all information on donating and pledging, including information on
how to donate by check, money order, or wire transfer, please visit:

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University
and as such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is
a registered 501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is
38-6005986. These donations can be offset against your federal and
sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more
information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will
match any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this
entails your contacting your human resources department and sending us
a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your
employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure that
doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an
extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company operates
such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
