    Longman defines the difference between the use of "fund" and "funds" as follows:

    fund

    1 [countable] an amount of money that is collected and kept for a particular purpose: The house fell into disrepair until a restoration fund was set up.
    pension/hardship/compensation etc fund
    funding, trust fund

    2 funds [plural] money that an organization needs or has: A sale is being held to raise funds for the school.
    government/public funds
    claims that ministers had misused public funds

    The park remains unfinished due to lack of funds.
    The Museum is so short of funds (=has so little money) it may have to sell the painting.
