Hi Kate,

It is a good sign that you did the research.

By the way, I remember as a successful businessman told us, his 
employees, to read a book on a project's subject. He even asked 
questions to verify that a certain book was actually read. Come to think 
about it, probably, it is a good time to read a book, something like:

"Managing Foundations and Charitable Trusts: Essential Knowledge, Tools, 
and Techniques for Donors and Advisors" [1]

Or maybe there is another good book on this topic? Perhaps, someone can 
advise me a good book?
