Just a reminder that your last chance to make a tax-deductible contribution to ELi in 2016 is coming up on Saturday, December 31. ELi is an IRS-recognized public service organization, and as such, your donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Here are ways you can help:

  • Make a lump-sum contribution by credit card using our PayPal donation system: you don't have to have a PayPal account to do this--you just use any major credit card. Click here to send a contribution by credit card.
  • Donate a lump-sum by check: make your check payable to "East Lansing Info" and mail it to ELi, PO Box 115, East Lansing, MI, 48826.
  • You can also become a committed monthly patron: Take five minutes to set up a monthly automatic partnership contribution ($5, $10, $20, whatever amount works for you) with your credit card via through PayPal. This will help us reach our sustainability goal.


Yes, you can make a lump sum for this year AND sign up to be a monthly booster! We would love it if you do both. If you are mailing a check, if it is dated December 31 or earlier, we will send you a receipt for 2016. Credit card contributions must be made during 2016 for a 2016 deduction.

ELi is currently on break and will be back on January 3, 2016. We already have some articles in the work that we think will be of interest to many of our readers!

And thanks for all your support!
