I'm a Linguist List advisor, but I'm also the undergraduate
advisor for my department. I have a whole routine I go through
with each new student, of course, and at the end of the
appointment I give them some materials about the field. And
one of the things I do at that point is I make sure they know
about the Linguist List -- I give them the URL and tell them to
check the website out if they haven't already -- and especially
to check out the Student Portal.
This is yet another way that Linguist List makes my life easier,
and is another reason that I donate to the Linguist List fund
drive. If it makes your life easier too -- in any way -- please
consider making a donation during our advisor's challenge.
Any amount would be greatly appreciated!
This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $67,000. This money will go to help
keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.

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!
