A lot of the constitution stuff can be as wibbly as you like. It
doesn't need to be very formal at all.

I do personally believe it's important to put money in an ethical
account. The unethical investment of our money is one of the greatest
evils of the world. Just look at some of companies in today's Guardian
article on the 'new Scramble for Africa' -
It would be good to know that none of SSF's money was being used to
further this kind of pillage.
