Fund Drive 2019

Dear Linguists,

A year has passed since the beginning of the last year fund drive and we ask you again: support the LINGUIST List. If we want to stay a relevant source of information, we need to keep re-inventing ourselves and invest in the re-development and update of the elements of the site and services that have served us for years. We strive to remain a source of relevant information for all of you and make your interaction with LINGUIST easy and pleasant. This year we have re-designed the submission forms and while we are still testing, we listen to your feedback and hope to have soon a simple and pretty interface. Apart from the back-end renovations, we have a new LINGUIST List web site – which contains all the same information but is easier to navigate and visually more pleasing. In the spirit of renovations and renewals, the theme of this year’s fund drive will be language documentation and revitalization. Please visit our site – to find out how to donate, to check how your university,
country or discipline ranks in the fund drive challenges, or to read thrilling stories about revitalization projects. Or go directly to the donation site (https://iufoundation.fundly.com/the-linguist-list-2019). Don’t forget to leave the name of your university and your discipline in the note field to participate in the fund drive challenges!

To stay on top of the game we need your feedback but also moral and financial support. Only part of our income comes from other sources – from the support of our hosting institution, Indiana University, and income from advertisements. Please, if you read LINGUIST List, donate. Even the smallest donations matter. We cannot continue without the support of our readers.

This year’s fund drive will be run via Indiana University Foundation. It is connected with the celebration of IUDay and will last till late April. In the 6 years since we have moved to Bloomington, we have become a part of Indiana University but our main goal is to contribute to a global community. We hope the community is there for us. Let’s make it a short fund drive. Please feel free to share broadly the link to our campaign. Support the LINGUIST List.
