What happens to unspent funds or unanticipated revenues?

As a general rule, these funds are added to the entity's Fund Balance at the end of the fiscal year. The Fund Balance is the organization's reserve and may be referred to colloquially as a "rainy day" fund. In some cases, the entity's legislative body may direct the funds toward an unmet need, such as a capital improvement project.
