Dear Subscribers,

Why do I donate to the Linguist List? Because
I think that the LINGUIST List is an essential
service for the field world-wide. I remember
how difficult it was, when I was on the job
market (and retyping my thesis on my trusty
Smith-Corona), just to make sure I knew about
all the jobs I should be applying for. From
its relatively simple beginnings as a
particularly well-designed listserv, to its
current incarnation as a stupendous repository
of information and resources and a virtually
instant communication system for us all, the
LINGUIST List has established itself as a major
part of the framework that holds our global
community together. I simply can't imagine how
we'd function without it.

About fifteen years ago there was a document
published - I forget by whom - that listed all
the linguistics graduate programs in (I think)
North America, with names of faculty, information
about what degrees were offered, etc. I bought
a copy; it cost maybe twenty dollars, but I
found it useful. When I was on the job market
someone gave me a subscription to University
Affairs, a Canadian publication that was,
at the time, the major place where academic jobs
were advertised. Probably 95% of the information
in the publication was completely useless to me,
and I had to pore over pages of advertisements in
tiny print to find the linguistics jobs (there
were, I think, three in Canada that year). That
subscription cost about $30, and it was over
thirty years ago. In an average week the LINGUIST
List provides me with more information I need,
in a form that's more useful, than both of those
documents ever did.

So I think the LINGUIST List is amazingly good
value for money, even if I make a sizable donation
every year.

Donate to LINGUIST at:

Elizabeth Cowper
Professor, Department of Linguistics
University of Toronto

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!

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

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!
