SV DSA Mutual Aid Fund
Resolved that SV DSA shall create a Mutual Aid Fund to raise money for community aid projects and crisis relief. Appropriate projects include, but shall not be limited to, the following:
The fund may be used to:
Disbursement shall be at the discretion of the SV DSA officers by a majority vote, or an appropriate body created by the officers or the chapter, consisting of members of SV DSA. The officers may revoke disbursement authority by a simple majority.
The initial expiration date of the fundraiser shall be 9/30/2020. SV DSA may extend the duration of fundraising by a chapter vote.

When the fundraiser expires, SV DSA shall speedily disburse the remaining money per the criteria above. Additionally, SV DSA may donate the remaining money to any Bay Area organization doing social welfare work in a way compatible with the mission of SV DSA. Only in the event of the dissolution of SV DSA may the remaining money be donated to National DSA.
