*Programs and Institutions If your school hasn't already been listed in our Institutions, registering in our Programs and Institutions area is an important step. People can align themselves to your institution or name you as their host institution for their research and dissertations. You can also add degree and research programs relevant to linguistics.

We know you're itching to use the new features mentioned above, but in the meantime, be sure to read our next letter in this series on special interest resources (such as social media, discussions, blogs, etc.)!

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.
