The General Fund is an all-purpose fund to support the mission and basic operations of the BSA. Donations to the General Fund may be used to support any of several BSA projects, programs, and events. At the discretion of the Board of Directors, the General Fund may also be used to support current Bloom's syndrome research or accelerate the growth of the endowment.
The BSA is a volunteer-run organization. Staff members, officers, and members of the Board of Directors receive no financial compensation for their services. The majority of operating funds are used to host and manage the organization’s website via licensed software and services. For all other operations, overhead is minimal.
