The BAS Fund is a charitable fund set up under the auspices of the Toronto Foundation through the generosity of dear friends of the Sutin family, to honour the legacy of Ben Sutin who died at age 34 in June 2020.

The Fund is administered by Ben’s parents, Rick and Jan Sutin, and his sister Rebecca Max, with the objective of making charitable gifts that would reflect Ben’s interests when he was alive.
