Fund Drive 2014 Results
The Fund Drive 2014 is OVER! Thank you so much to everyone for another successful year! We stopped this year before reaching our goal because the end of the Fund Drive coincided with the beginnings of the move of LINGUIST List from EMU to Indiana University. Though the Fund Drive is over donations are welcome at any time and can be contributed here.
This year we received AMAZING support from linguistic communities all over the world. Notable among these were Russia making the Top 5 in the Countries Challenge and University of Washington, who unseated the long-reigning champion in the University Challenge, Stanford University!

2014 FUND DRIVE HOGTION
We are pleased as pork pie to kick off our first ever LINGUIST List HOGTION! Join the to battle to save our most coveted and loyal office companions – the piggies! The array of cuteness, absurdity, ugliness and novelty is vast, but the cause is singular — support. What better way to show your appreciation to all of the helpful and informative staff here at LINGUIST List than to make these little piggies fly! With a bit of luck, charm and generosity, you could take home some of this unique LL memorabilia.
Let’s meet our piglets
Although these quirky artifacts lack inherent monetary value, they are stuffed with the rich and playful history of the LINGUIST List! 100% of donations go towards our 2014 Fund Drive, which is funneled directly back into services that keep LL a global linguistic outreach.
By owning a piece of LL history, you can be reminded everyday that big changes start with small little pig things.
