The Community Development Fund serves to redistribute a portion of the cooperative's surplus earnings to the community. Following a proposal by the board of directors, during the annual general meeting, members decide what portion of the surplus earnings will be paid into the community fund. Through their caisse, members can support causes that are important to them.

Members who sit on the board of directors manage the community fund. Every year, they report on the fund at the annual general meeting.

The caisse plays a major role in the community’s development by promoting Desjardins values, including mutual assistance and solidarity.

Through donations and sponsorships, Caisse Desjardins du Haut-Saint-Laurent focuses on improving the quality of life and economy of the Haut-Saint-Laurent region by supporting:

  • education
  • next generation of entrepreneurs
  • health and healthy lifestyles
  • cultural growth
