My name is Justin Petro; I'm a student in the MA program for Linguistics at Eastern Michigan University, I work at LINGUIST List, and if that last statement wasn't true, the one before it wouldn't be either. You can make sure both of those statements remain true by pledging a donation to LINGUIST List here: http://linguistlist.org/donation
I'm sure that you're aware of all the great information and services LINGUIST List provides to the discipline; everything from conference and job announcements to the hosting and maintenance of indispensable resources such as MultiTree and LL-MAP. What's also important to remember is that behind all of that there's a team of Graduate Assistants and Student Workers like myself who work tirelessly to provide these services to you.
As a Publications Editor, ColdFusion Editor, and project team member on LEGO and RELISH, LINGUIST List has provided me not only with the funding I need to continue my studies in the discipline, but also the hands-on training and experience in technologies crucial for the next generation of linguists. To put it simply, I would not be where I am in my studies or my career in linguistics without the support of LINGUIST List.
LINGUIST List is both an indispensable resource for the field and a training ground for bright young students eager to contribute to the discipline. Please take the time to pledge your support of this wonderful institution: http://linguistlist.org/donation
With gratitude and thanks, Justin Petro Student Editor LINGUIST List

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.
