Tell me again about the public trust (collection of over 30 Tiffany objects edition)

The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston is selling.

Remember, having fallen under the aegis of a museum, those objects are held in the public trust, to be accessible to present and future generations.

And potential future donors will certainly being asking, Why should I give this to you? What guarantee do I have that you're not going to sell it, just like you sold off those 30+ Tiffany objects?

That's the coin of the realm folks.  Use your common sense.
