After a long, long stretch at the top of the Graduate Tournament leaderboards, Stanford University has been deposed! The University of Washington has reclaimed its former status as top school, showing an astounding $4005 in donations. With perhaps as little as three days remaining in Fund Drive, can anyone overtake U. Washington? Will another school school snag the Golden Pig Award for themselves?
Donate today to boost your school's standing in the Tournament, and to enter yourself in the raffle for today's fantastic Prize of the Day: the entire Understanding Language series from Hodder Education!
We'll also give you a sneak preview of what's in store for the weekend: we'll have a prize raffle every single day until we reach our fundraising goal. Stay tuned to learn what the prize for Saturday will be!
We salute you, University of Washington, as well as all of the other schools who have contributed! Thank you!
The LINGUIST List Crew
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.

Drive 2012 site!
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.
