Yes, this is the case for the Bounty Hunt.

Totally understandable. I think that, if the Foundation got a boatload of
no-strings-attached $$$ (highly unlikely atm, but for instance), the Board
would probably put together some scenarios or proposals for what to do with
the $$$, and ask for feedback from Foundation members. This is what I would
push for, anyway. ;-)

But in this case, the Foundation is working as a middle-man for our sponsor.
