Caisse Desjardins Des Rivières de Québec is committed to investing in the community through the Community Development Fund, a fund set up by caisse members to help carry out growth-generating projects in the community. The fund allows us to show our solidarity and help bring tangible improvement to community well-being.

Applications for funding of growth-generating projects are evaluated by a committee made up of caisse management team members and the Board of Directors.
