(A) No foundation board member may solicit or accept anything of value in his or her capacity as a member of the foundation board, including, but not limited to the following: gifts, food or beverages, social event tickets or expenses, travel expenses, or consulting fees, from any person interested in matters before, doing business with, or seeking to do business with, the foundation.
