If you like the LINGUIST List and have benefited from our free service, tell your friends about the LINGUIST List and our Fund Drive. Every little bit of support is appreciated!
There will be many more great prizes from our supporting publishers in the coming month, so stay tuned to our social media pages to hear about more prizes that you can win. Thanks and good luck!
Linguistically yours, The LINGUIST List Crew
This year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $79,000. This money will go to help keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.
For all information on donating, including information on how to donate by check, money order, PayPal or wire transfer, please visit: http://funddrive.linguistlist.org/donate/
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.
