Subject: A new challenge to end Fund Drive!

Dear Colleagues,

They say that three times is the charm - and this is the third letter
I am writing for the 2008 fund drive.  Helen and Anthony are tired,
the students are tired, the Advisory Board is tired, and I am sure you
are all equally tired of hearing from many of us about why to support
Linguist List.  So - let's put an end to it (that's the charm I'm
looking for).  The Advisors have come up with another challenge for
you!  If you raise the $1994 that are left, we will donate another

I challenge you (the many, many thousands who have not contributed and
may, alas, take Linguist List for granted) to meet this challenge to
show the LINGUIST List how much we appreciate their efforts to make
our lives esier.  I challenge you to bring Linguist List to the
$60,000 total it needs to meet expenses and continue serving the
entire world-wide linguistic community.

Donate now at

And with that I will hope for the best and thank you in advance for your

With best wishes from the Advisors,
Margaret Winters


This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $60,000. This money will go
to help keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors
for the coming year.

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.

Note: the donors' names are appended to every fund drive message sent
to the main list.  You can also see the list of all donors by clicking

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
