This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $65,000. This money will go to help keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.

You can donate right now using our secure credit card form at Alternatively you can also pledge right now and pay later. To do so, go to: For all information on donating and pledging, including information on how to donate by check, money order, or wire transfer, please visit: 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. Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
