And this is why Frederik is wrong: Even to provide supportive services
there needs to be a vision and mission. Only if everybody understands
the strategic goals of the Foundation you can derive the appropriate
targets for the supportive services like technical infrastructure (e.g.
services and service levels?), legal services (e.g. asset lock yes or no
and what for?), fundraising (how much? maximizing donations or targeted
donation drives?). Otherwise it is just opinion against opinion that
cannot be aligned with higher level goals.
