Message 1: Future PhD
Date: 20-Mar-2006
From: linguist <linguistlinguistlist.org>
Subject: Future PhD

Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers and Readers, 

This is my third and final personal letter to all of you, and I want to
take this opportunity to thank you for your support of my work here at
LINGUIST over the last three years. Your donations have helped to fund
not only my own graduate work, but also a website that is invaluable to
the field of linguistics.

I have been fortunate enough to help develop a website and online archive
of Dena'ina Athabaskan. If you have not yet seen the Dena'ina Qenaga
('language') website, please take a moment to explore it now.

You can find it at http://qenaga.org . Please be sure to browse and search
the Archive section, which contains information on all of the Dena'ina
language materials that are housed at the Alaska Native Language Center in
Fairbanks. This archive is a boon to both Dena'ina community members and to
linguists: Fairbanks is pretty far away from most people, and now users can
download many of the materials from the comfort of their own home. I am proud
to have been a part of the Dena'ina Archiving, Training and Access project,
and I hope to use the skills I learned to help other communities access
language information online.

I am almost finished with my M.A. at Wayne State University, and I owe much
of what I have learned to my experience with LINGUIST. In the fall I will
begin working toward a PhD, and I know that the services LINGUIST provides
will be as useful to me as they have been to you. Please take a moment and
make a small (or large) contribution to help ensure the continuation of
LINGUIST's high-quality service to the field of linguistics.

Yours sincerely,

Andrea Berez
Research Assistant

Message 2: How to Donate
Date: 20-Mar-2006
From: linguist <linguistlinguistlist.org>
Subject: How to Donate

This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $52,932. 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!
