receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit

your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift

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.
