Dear Colleagues, 
As befits the board of an electronic listserv, the LINGUIST List Board of Advisors meets in person at most only once a year. Even then only those of us among the 35 members who happen to be attending the annual Linguistics Society of America meeting try to get together for an hour with Anthony and Helen - it isn't really a formal meeting. Many of us don't go to LSA regularly, though, and others don't - for various reasons - ever attend. So we normally communicate (and sometimes disagree) with each other only virtually. It's worth pointing out as well that we represent many theories of linguistics and many subspecialities - we are a diverse group, bringing our own points of view to the Board of Advisors.
There is, however, one place we absolutely do agree: the LINGUIST List must be supported financially! And we put our money where our (virtual) mouths are. As in past years, the Advisors have pooled our donations and now challenge you, the rest of the LINGUIST List subscribers, to improve on what we have done. We would like to see you (the collected other subscribers to LINGUIST List who have not yet donated - and there are many, many of you!) quintuple our $2000 and end the fund drive by pledging another $10,000 in the next two days.
Don't forget, there are 35 of us who have pledged that $2000; that is about $57 a person. And there are 29,000 members altogether (all right, 28,963 not counting the advisors or Anthony and Helen) with just over 800 contributions so far - consider how little would have to come from each of those of you who haven't pledged yet to make up the remaining amount needed for operating costs!
Just think, if every person who hasn't yet sent a donation pledged US$2.00/Euro1.5 (or the equivalent in your own currency), which is less than the cost of a fancy cup of coffee, LINGUIST List would be way over the top and might even be able to have a shorter, less demanding drive next year.
Thank you for listening to this LINGUIST List fan and thank you even more, from the entire Board of Advisors, for your contribution!
Donate now:

Best wishes, Margaret Winters Wayne State University Detroit, Michigan, USA



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!
