Fundraising Society

Friends of Joseph M. Demko School Society

The Friends of Joseph M. Demko School Society is a formal group of parents, incorporated under the Societies Act for the purpose of raising funds for the school. A society is a separate legal entity from the school council. Fundraising efforts support many aspects of student learning: literacy, numeracy, activities and field trips.
