Why give to Living Tongues? We are dedicated to our work, and we are playing an important part in endangered language research and raising awareness about linguistic diversity. Over the last 10 years, we have visited more than 100 communities where endangered languages are spoken, and we have collaborated with local speakers and educators to launch over 80 Talking Dictionaries in support of these languages.

Every year, we hold several workshops around the world, training speakers with valuable digital skills that allow them to launch their own Talking Dictionaries and maintain as well as expand them over time. We publish scientific articles and books about our research findings and speak at conferences around the world.

Please consider Living Tongues Institute for Endangered Languages, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, when planning your charitable giving. We rely solely on the generosity of donors and grants to fund our field expeditions, publications, multi-media projects and assistance to indigenous communities struggling for cultural and linguistic survival. Your 100% tax deductible contribution can help us preserve valuable knowledge for future generations.
