As of Sunday afternoon at 3:00 (EST), Fund Drive has made $33,331.34 While we are so grateful for all of the support we have received thus far, we are far from our goal. We are over $46,000 away from earning what we need. If we don’t meet our goal, major changes will have to be made to the LINGUIST List that you know and love.
