Introduction to the LINGUIST List 2016 Fund Drive Publisher Lottery

Dear LINGUIST List Colleagues,

It’s that time of year again, where we come to you, the linguistic community, the backbone of our organization, and ask that you chip in a donation to help support our operation for another year. And as always, we try to make the Fund Drive interesting and fun by offering publisher raffles. If you are unfamiliar with our Fund Drives, you may be wondering what this involves.

Every week we will be offering a lottery of prizes, consisting of books and journal subscriptions that are generously donated by our Supporting Publishers (see here for the full list of our supporters: http://funddrive.linguistlist.org/supporters/).

For every $10 that you donate, your name will be entered into the lottery. So in other words, for every $10 you donate, you increase your chances of winning. We understand if you cannot donate a lot (most of us are poor college students too!). But we didn’t want you to be left out from the fun prizes, so even if you can only donate $10, you still have a chance to win! Many of the prizes offered in the lottery

Every little bit helps, and we appreciate every bit of support we receive from you. If you cannot donate, please support us by spreading the word to your friends and colleagues about our Fund Drive.

Stay tuned for details concerning our first publisher lottery!

Sincerely,
The LINGUIST List Team
