Back in January, we held office hours at the 2012 Linguistic Society of America. In addition to the pleasure of talking with a lot of wonderful linguists, we had the privilege of recording some vlogs (an adorable portmanteau of video + blog) from LINGUIST List users telling us why they value LINGUIST. A couple of choice quotes:
"Do you want to find out what people are talking about in linguistics? You can go to LINGUIST List. It's a great resource. It's made a huge difference for me." -Marianna Di Paolo, Center for American Indian Languages
"I look at LINGUIST List every single day. It's my link to the world of linguistics." -Julia James, independent researcher
"I just want to give a shout out to LINGUIST List for all they've done to help facilitate linguistic communication within the field." -Gary Holton, Alaska Native Language Center

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.
