Dear Subscribers,

In years past I have written to you about the opportunities that
LINGUIST has provided to me, but this year I want to talk about what
LINGUIST does for you, which is what should really motivate you to
donate.

We provide all the information you need as a professional
linguist through our website and mailing list, and on top of that,
LINGUIST is constantly working on tools and resources that we think will
help you in your research. We want to make sure that you can find whatever information
you need to do fieldwork, to preserve and share your data, to get a job
or fill a job, and to network and share and learn. If you are reading
this message, chances are that you have been helped in at least one of
these ways.

We also strongly believe that all these resources should be freely
available to whoever needs them. Our new Easy Abs facility and our free
mailing list hosting service are just two examples of our commitment to
providing opportunities for groups who might not otherwise be able to
afford specialized software. The many hours of work that went into
Easy Abs were not free, though, and neither are the LISTSERV software,
server and technical support we provide to the mailing lists.
We can only continue to provide these services, and
all our other services, if those users who are able to support us do so.

Times are tough, and there are many worthy causes requesting your money,
more than you can afford to support. However, when you think
about donating to The LINGUIST List, remember that LINGUIST is
not a cause or a charity - it's a set of existing and growing
services that supports and enhances your career. Keeping
LINGUIST free means that everyone in the discipline will be able to access our services.
The entire community benefits from keeping linguist free,
but we couldn't do it without the donations from readers who can
contribute a small sum each year.

Please donate as much as you feel you can - even a small amount will help:

Yours very gratefully,

Susan Smith
Project Coordinator
The LINGUIST List





This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $65,000. 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 Space Fund 
Drive 2010 and join us for a great journey!

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/donation/

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!
