    purchased with resources of the Fund/ with the resources of the Fund

    Hi All,

    I wanted to ask you for your opinion, help with the use of definite article and the word resources.

    I have a signature below a painting that says that the painting was bought with the resources of the Fund.

    I actually have two questions. The first one is regarding the use of definite article in this example ''purchased with the resources of the Fund or without the article ''purchased with resources of the Fund''

    And the second question is: can the word ''resources'' be used here? I wanted to avoid repetition ''funds'' ''Fund''.

    Thank you in advance

    The problem with the definite article is it would make it sound as if all the Fund's resources were used. I would not use the definite article. I would change "of" to "from".
