Dear all,

let me remind you of the LINGUIST LIST Fund Drive. The good people who,
among other things, maintain the mirror archive of our list, depend on our
support ­ it doesn't have to be a big sum.

Dear Subscribers,

We have reached the weekend goal of $51,000!  The end of our fund drive
rapidly approaches!

Can we get to $52,500 today? That is less than $1500 remaining for one
day. No matter how many people donating whatever they can afford, we need
your help!  Whether we receive $15 from 100 people or more, we need you so
that we can give you what you need for one more year: free services and
access to a lot of information in Linguistics!

Help us raise the money we need to fund our students, so that we can
continue to provide all the services and information you have come to rely

Donate now at

Help us reach $52,500 today!


This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $65,000. This money will go to
keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the
coming year.

See below for donation instructions, and don't forget to check out our Space
Drive 2010 and join us for a great journey!

There are many ways to donate to LINGUIST!

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

Alternatively you can also pledge right now and pay later. To do so, go to:

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

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and
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
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or
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
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST,
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!
