I mostly agree with the goal of this clarification, but I think this
wording for the final paragraph is slightly more aligned with the
precise legal specifics:

In such a circumstance, the SPI Board will, in its good-faith
discretion, proceed as follows: the Board will identify one or more
other SPI associated projects or 501(c)(3) charities which can accept
the project's assets and use them for a similar purpose, and transfer
the assets to the identified destination or destinations as feasible.
Assets for which no such transfer can be arranged within a reasonable
time will become part of the SPI general fund.

How does that sound? I realize that "within a reasonable time" relies on
the discretion noted at the start of my proposed paragraph, but so does
your wording (e.g. "try to identify" / "failing that").
