Message 1: Needing you more than ever - a message from Andrew Carnie

Subject: Needing you more than ever - a message from Andrew Carnie

Have you ever bought a book because you read about it on the LINGUIST
List? Have you applied for a job you saw advertized on the LINGUIST
List? Do you get your conference announcements from the LINGUIST List?
Have you ever enjoyed reading a battle-royal in the discussion section
of the LINGUIST list?

What would life be like without it? Well, you may soon find out. Like
many donation funded institutions, the LINGUIST list is suffering from
the current recessive economy in the US. All the supporting
institutions are cutting back support and funding. So now, more than
ever we rely on the donations of individuals like you. Did you know
that of the 15,600 subscribers who belong to the list, less than 350
of them make an annual donation. Wouldn't you like to be one of the
elite who do? Unfortunately, if we don't meet are target this year,
the continued health of the institution we have all come to rely on
may well disappear. Please help keep this important part of our
intellectual life going.

Donations, which are tax deductable, can be made at:
http://linguistlist.org/donate.html.

Please also consider forwarding this message to your department or
other lists that you belong to.

Best,

Andrew

As Andrew says, very few of our subscribers ever donate to us. And
yet, we need subscriber donations more than ever. So we are extremely
grateful to everyone listed below, who have contributed to us this
year. Thanks to you all, we have now collected $36,788. 

However, this is still some way off our target of $48,000, which we
need to maintain our student editors next year. Please don't make us
add to the unemployment statistics. Please donate to us.

So if you have not donated yet, please go to
http://linguistlist.org/donate.html to send us your pledge. From
there you have the choice of donating straight away by credit card
using our secure form, or you can send us a cheque later. If you do
send a cheque, please make it payable in US dollars; we get charged
about $50 a time to convert currency (no such problems with a credit
card).

Alternatively, you can hit "Reply" to this message and send us your
pledge right now by email, prior to sending your cheque. Then we will
be able to list you immediately as one of our donors; and we may be
able to reach our goal (and halt these Fund Drive messages) a bit
earlier. The address to send cheques is as follows:

The LINGUIST Editorial Support Fund
c/o Helen Aristar-Dry
Dept. of English
Eastern Michigan University
Ypsilanti, MI 
USA 48197

As a 501(c)3 organization, LINGUIST qualifies for corporate
donation-matching programs; and, of course, your donation is tax
deductible.

Don't forget that in return for a donation of $25 or more, we would
like to send you a gift. This year, we introduced LINGUIST List tote
bags, which are light, strong, and dark blue. We also have
sweatshirts and long- and short-sleeved T-shirts, in a wider range of
sizes. Please go to http://linguistlist.org/premiums.html to see what
we have. Do let us know in your pledge what you would like and please
remember to include your mailing address.

We at LINGUIST really do appreciate your support. We could not
continue without you.

With our sincere thanks,

The LINGUIST Crew:

Anthony, Helen, Andrew, Karen, Naomi, Heather, James, Michael,
Zhen-Wei, Richard, Karolina, Dina, Renee, Steve, Marie, Gayathri,
John, Ljuba, Terry, Simin, Tomoko.
