Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,
I want to begin this letter with a thank you. My tenure at LINGUIST
List began this past fall semester after I was accepted to the Master's
program in Linguistics at Eastern Michigan University. Within minutes
of my first day on the job I came to realize how important each and
every one of you is to our continued operation. You are the reason I
have been able to complement my graduate studies with hands-on experience
that goes above and beyond the classroom. Thank you for your generous
donations and your continued patronage to our web service.
Your support allows me to edit and post your FYI submissions and your
new journal announcements. With your contributions and patronage, I am
able to enter lexicons into the LEGO database and tag their grammatical
information to GOLD, thus familiarizing myself with XML and the importance
of interoperability. Every task I complete at LINGUIST List is done with
your generous support in mind.
Since LINGUIST List is a non-profit organization, your contribution is
essential to maintain our operations. Amounts such as $5.00, $10.00, or
$15.00 would go a long way toward meeting our goal. Please donate at:
Again, thank you!

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!
