We need your help now! We need your donations.
I know that we always tell you how many things
we do to contribute to the discipline and how
many things we have done in the previous year
to make LINGUIST better. And we also tell you
how each and every one of your contributions are
essential to our continuing providing all of
this for free.
All that is true. It is also true that many
of you can spare some money to support this
endevour. Probably several of you had dinner
out this weekend or bought yourselved a coffee
or capuccino at a coffee store. How about
renting some movies or purchasing some books
We do not ask you to send us your whole
paycheck in order to support LINGUIST. But we
do want to point out that if you donate to
LINGUIST this week instead of the expensive
coffee or extra movies or lunch at a restaurant,
we can make our goal sooner!
Donate now and feel better (the same way you
would feel after a delicious coffee!).
The LINGUIST Crew
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 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.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
