Did They Know Where their Money was Going?

The SLAM website gives the information who gave the Museum's Trustees the money in 1997 to buy the Ka Nefer Nefer mask (Accession Number: 19:1998). Did these people know in advance what their money was going to be used to buy, and were they fully appraised about its provenance before they agreed? Did they know the money was going to the Aboutaam brothers? What do these people now think that their names are associated with this purchase?
