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.

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