Grad School Challenge Update 

University of Wisconsin-Madion, University of Toronto
and University of Washington have started the race for
the lead in the Grad School Challenge. They have been
passing each other to take the lead each day! They have
started the much awaited competition in the Grad School
Challenge. So far, University of Wisconsin-Madison has
been able to get its faculty, staff and student body to
donate $600. Not far from it is the University of Toronto
with a total of $575. Just barely behind is the University
of Washington. If they continue in these positions, they
will be the lucky recepients of some of the prizes for
the Grad School Challenge.

This year, we have divided the schools in regions.
Yesterday's status for each region was:

University of Botswana (Africa)
University of Toronto (Americas)
Saga National University (Asia)
Universitat de Barcelona (Europe)
University of Cyprus (Middle East)
Griffith University, Monash University (Pacific)
University of Wisconsin-Madison (US East)
University of Washington (US West)

that there are some perks to organizing your school's
donations: John Benjamins is donating a prize to the grad school
coordinator who raises the most donations for LINGUIST
each week! What is the prize?
One-year personal subscriptions of the winner's choice
to any of the J. Benjamins journals! How can you resist
that?

The LINGUIST Crew





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 
2009 LINGUIST List Restaurant and join us for a delightful treat!

http://linguistlist.org/fund-drive/2009/

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 
donate by check, money order, or wire transfer, please visit:
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!
