Dear Colleagues, 

The very talented and innovative Linguist List team has come up with a circus theme
this year for the - inevitable - fund drive. I hope you are enjoying their ideas.
I've been thinking as a result about circuses: one of the reasons we might go the
circus is to experience what the Barnum and Bailey ringmaster always called (roughly)
the thrills and chills for children of all ages. Think about lion tamers, trapeze
artists, and tightrope walkers - part of the fun for many of us is the edgy kind of
excitement that comes from watching them do things with very large animals or balanced
and moving up in the air-something which we could never imagine doing ourselves.

Of course, Linguist List doesn't need that kind of edgy excitement! Anthony, Helen,
and all of us need to know, day to day and year to year, that the funding is sufficient
for the task. And for that we need your help - your contributions make for stability
and the right kind of dull boredom which comes from knowing that expenses will be
covered and Linguist List will continue to flourish. The excitement can come once
in a while from the postings, but not from the not very thrilling but indeed extremely
chilling threat of no Linguist List at all.

Many thanks for your contributions,
Margaret Winters





This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $60,000. This money will go to help keep 
the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.

See below for donation instructions, and don't forget to check out our Fund Drive 
2008 LINGUIST List Circus and join us on our many shows!

There are many ways to donate to LINGUIST!

You can donate right now using our secure credit card form at  
https://linguistlist.org/donation/donate/donate1.cfm

Alternatively you can also pledge right now and pay later. To do so, go to:
https://linguistlist.org/donation/pledge/pledge1.cfm

For all information on donating and pledging, including information on how to

http://linguistlist.org/donate.html

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!
