My name is Flora Du. I started to work as a financial editor in August 2009. This is my last opportunity to participate in Fund Drive, since I am graduating in April. I would like to say thanks for your support, and enabling me and others such an excellent opportunity to learn and grow. Without your help, I cannot work, and our organization cannot survive, please donate this year to keep our work and LINGUIST List alive:
Among the linguistic and computer science students, the LINGUIST List chose me, an accounting student, because it needs special accounting skills for the jobs you list. My responsibility is to assist LINGUIST List with planning and using its financial resources efficiently, economically and effectively. Such work and learning experiences have broadened my accounting knowledge, and have encouraged me to pursue my career goal as an auditor.
All of your donations go to students' payroll. In return, our students put robust work into providing free yet valuable services for you. With your continued submissions and generous donations, students from all over the world can have this wonderful opportunity to become better scholars and to provide to the betterment of linguistics.
To help the survival of linguistics, and to help me and our fellow crew members to continue next year's work, please donate today:
For all information on donating and pledging, including information on how to

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.
