The MultiTree project, a digital library of language relationship hypotheses, has been supported through your donations since 2008. These donations are greatly appreciated, because they have allowed students to work on this project:
The MultiTree library has 1,015 language family trees that are freely available to the public at http://multitree.org. Our hyperbolic tree viewer allows one to visualize the language relationships in a hierarchical tree view. The public may also download, comment on, and compare the trees within the library.
The comparison feature's ability to display two hypotheses in the same browser window is an important feature in our discipline, where hypotheses for languages families can vary greatly depending on the specialist and the time period in which they were written. In addition to providing these hypotheses in accessible format, MultiTree offers an impressive bibliography of sources for those who are interested in learning more about a particular family.
The continued development and maintenance of MultiTree can only happen with your ongoing support. Please donate today to ensure that this resource is available for all to use:

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.
