Robin, 

I believe that the Articles of Incorporation were written by drobbins 
lawyer. From reading up about these things (as a non USAsian, I've 
needed to do that) I understand its normal practice to write the 
purpose as widely and vaguely as possible so that as times change and 
the focus of the NPO shifts, as it may, the articles do not need to be 
changed.
