 Dear Friends of LINGUIST List, 

As of 7:00 (EST) on Tuesday, Fund Drive 2015 has raised $31,072.27. We are grateful to have gotten that far, but we are nowhere near our goal of $79,000. LINGUIST List needs to get to the number to continue and continue to be FREE for our subscribers for another year. We know you are busy and we know you get a lot of emails. Once we meet our goal, Fund Drive will wind down. Please help us get there!
