Subject: Please help us meet our goal in the Advisors' Challenge and end Fund Drive!

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I've been sitting here this morning (at least morning in 
the eastern USA) catching up with LINGUIST.  Unfortunately, 
the fund drive is a major distraction - I find I cannot 
concentrate on calls, conferences, book notices, and all 
the other important services LINGUIST provides, because 
I am distracted by the fund drive mailings.  This is not 
a good way -- especially for those of us struggling to 
keep up when our university jobs are not directly in 
Linguistics -- to manage our professional/scholarly lives.  
So, please give generously to end the fund drive today so 
that all of us can go back to doing Linguistics.



This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $67,000. This money will go to help 
keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming

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!
