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

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match

costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
