As many of you know, our subscribers number in the tens of thousands, while we here at LINGUIST List are few. Fortunately, we also have our wonderful advisors to aid and guide us. Our advisors give us helpful feedback and act as a sounding board for new initiatives and developments here at The LINGUIST List. This year, they have also pledged to give $4,000 if YOU--yes, that's all of our subscribers--can double it!
Can you help us double their pledge of $4000?
Will you help them invest in our future? We believe that with enough support through your donations, we can continue to realize the dream of being a freely available, open resource for the worldwide linguistic community.
Our small group of advisors has pledged to donate $4000 if the thousands of people who visit our site each day can double this and donate $8000. While we could fill a large stadium with all of you who visit our site, our advisors don't even fill a classroom! And yet they stand before you with this challenge, daring LINGUIST's thousands of subscribers to match the donations of just a few heroic people.
Can you meet this challenge? We think you can-- give what you can now, and let's see if you can contribute $8,000 in 48 hours to END our 2012 fund drive!

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.
