In one of the videos there was a mention of how hard the great eight work. I noticed that they had to decide how to use donated money---not dedicated money. A subtle difference.
In my experience anyone who states how hard they work don’t really work that hard.
I guess that doesn’t answer the question about dedicated funds but the fact that they are promoting themselves indicate they are concerned about their position
@RTN - Yes, there is a subtle, but very real difference.
Donate: to contribute to a public or charitable cause
Dedicate: given over to a particular purpose
When the Dubs donate something particularly $$$$$ it has no stated purpose and can be used however the recipient sees fit. Even to buying cases of expensive whisky for their own personal use.
When $$$$$ are given under the dedicated condition the governing body members must use it for the purpose given, and nothing else. That is why they promote donating $$$$$ without putting a particular use in writing with the given $$$$$. They can line their own pockets that way.
That’s probably why they promote donating to the world wide work. It is considered general revenue and they can do as they please with the funds.
Dedicated Funds = in someone's pocket.
