Yeah but ... well, I'm not going to patronise you here... but it would
be a bit boring if the only thing you could do with the money was to
transfer it to the Foundation, wouldn't it?  ;-)

It might also not look so good when you apply for tax exemption /
deductibility (I don't know whether British authorities really
scrutinize each applicant...but in Switzerland, something like this,
viz. only spending money by forwarding, would be a major obstacle for
the application to succeed).
