I don't buy into the idea that someone else has caused you to feel like 
you can not be open with the Foundation, especially when you've been 
working through that person inpaticular for the most part.  I haven't 
seen anything from you or heard from you in private, if there has been a 
problem that you feel was stopping you from being open with us, you 
could have made the effort to either let us know or work around that 
person.  I'm not making excuses for Kurt here, but the claim that you 
make of him having a conflict of interest in this situation is offensive 
to me as I know Kurt, so I can't imagine how he must feel about it.  If 
there really is something along those lines, you need to spell it out 
right now instead of going around causing rumors about that.  Remember, 
"OPEN" communication here, please.
