FUNDY DENTAL COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION
The Fundy Dental Community Association is the not-for profit society created as part of the Community Project to raise money and manage donations at an arms-length from the clinic and dentists working in the FDCP. This not for profit society is currently incorporated with the registry of joint stock companies in Nova Scotia, and has an application pending with CRA to become a registered charity.

(4) allocate use of additional funds raised above and beyond initial targets
