Thank you to all who have supported us in the first day of Fund Drive 2016! We are a long way from our goal, but we are very appreciative for the donations we've received and those that we will receive throughout the duration of our event.
We are excited to introduce you to our Fund Drive Challenges, where we track our top donors by university, country, and subfield. Last year, our top donors were:
University: 1. Indiana University Bloomington 2. University of Washington 3. Stanford University
Country: 1. United States 2. Germany 3. United Kingdom
Who will take the top spots this year? We are excited to track the progress through these challenges, and encourage our subscribers to rally participation from their respective universities, countries, and subfields!

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Indiana University and as such can receive donations through the eLinguistics Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 45-4211155. 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 eLinguistics 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.
