Actually, it wouldn't. We are not going to have a method of collecting contributions anonymously.

Elena, PM me for clarity if you want, but I'd prefer not to start a discussion on fundraising approaches here - its tacky under the circumstances. Trust me our approach is well thought out, intentional, and designed with the boys interest in mind.

This is a wonderful response. I think all will be amazed at how much we can accomplish here.

Keep up the great work and generosity!

For whatever reason(s) .. I'm glad you'll not permit anonymous contributions.

A question for the architects of the investment vehicle:

Will this be something that can be added to in the future?

Thanks. In my community of friends, it might be that people will want to contribute in the future.

It may be too late.
It may be a bad idea.
It may not be possible.
It may not be worth the hassle.
It may consume some of the money.

But is it possible to form a non-profit thingie?

I know people in them upper income brackets LOVE tax deductions and they may contribute more.
We may collect so much more that it could more than pay for any fees.

I'm just wondering.

Kenny, nice thought but no. We are providing a benefit to two individuals only. That precludes it just as I could not do the same for the benefit of my own daughter.
