Involvement in the community

The caisse enriches the lives of individuals and communities through its financial and human contributions. It supports projects that meet the needs and expectations of its members. Desjardins is an important socioeconomic leader in the community and works alongside several partners.

Through donations, sponsorships and contributions from the Community Development Fund, the caisse supports multiple local and regional initiatives in various sectors.

The Community Development Fund (CDF), also called community dividends, is made possible by the caisse's yearly surplus earnings. During the annual general meeting, members vote on the amount allocated to the CDF. This is a way for all caisse members to support the development of their community and important projects.

Stronger Together program

Becoming a caisse member means supporting your cooperative and social commitment in the community

It's also having the power to choose a social cause that the caisse will donate $25 to through its Stronger Together program. This amount will be taken from the Community Development Fund and remitted in your name.

In December 2021, the caisse distributed $4,000 to local organizations. Nearly 160 new members of our cooperative chose to support a cause close to their heart.

We changed our program in 2022 by surveying new caisse members, who gave their opinion and selected 5 organizations to benefit from the program this year. The organizations that received the most votes are:

  • Viol-Secours
  • Le Grand Chemin
  • Leucan
  • Deuil-Jeunesse
  • Fondation CERVO

Choosing Desjardins means making a difference in your life and that of others.
