    Sunshine Fund

    The purpose of the Sunshine Fund is to support BAAFSSO members during times of trials and celebration. This can take the form of cards, flowers and/or monetary donations. 
    It is the responsibility of each member to notify the President of BAAFSSO of relevant events in each member's life. BAAFSSO asks each member to contribute $20 each academic year. Unspent proceeds will be rolled over each year.
