Subject: Editor Prashant Nagaraja on Being a LINGUIST

Fund Drive 2005 is now on! Visit to donate now!
Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,

It has been another whole year since I wrote a similar letter asking for your
donations: and what a great year it has been with LINGUIST!

Though the fund drive has started a little bit early this year, it doesn't seem
that a year has already passed by. A year filled with joyful experiences among
an entertaining crew, and (mostly!) with work that has been very rewarding. I
would like to write you a similar letter next year, but I will not be here for
that as this is my last year at LINGUIST and Eastern Michigan University, but I
am sure someone else will take the opportunity.

It has been a great time working at LINGUIST, and it does not feel that I have
been here for nearly three years now. I have a feeling of immense pride to have
been part of this service to the linguistic community, as well as fond memories
of all the fun and learning at LINGUIST. There have been new additions to the
crew, the feeling of which has been erased very soon as it does not take much
for any newbies to become a part of LINGUIST. They have already learnt their
programming skills and are now involved in honing them, just the way we all
started here.

We, at Linguist, work on challenging tasks and projects, especially when we do
something new that we have not done before. It is learning as well as a
dissecting experience which moulds us into someone new from what we came in here as.

On the whole, LINGUIST has been once in a time opportunity and I am very
grateful for having spent a part of my life here learning new things and meeting
diverse people. I owe this opportunity to you all, the people whose support
keeps LINGUIST running. We, any of us at LINGUIST, could not have had this
chance to be doing this without your donations and good will. We cannot thank
you enough for all this and I hope the work that we do at LINGUIST has been
serving your different needs for linguistics and that you wish us well.

Kindly keep your donations coming so that someone new can take my place in this
great institution. Thank you again.

Thank you,
Prashant Nagaraja

Subject: How to donate...

This Year the LINGUIST List hope to raise $48,867. This money will go to help
keep the List running, by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.

There are many ways to donate to LINGUIST!

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

Alternatively you can also pledge right now and pay later.

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

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!
