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.

A new eco-friendly fund

In order to contribute to local environmental efforts and the fight against climate change, the caisse has set up a $1 million eco-friendly fund.

Desjardins members can apply for funding in 2 ways:

  • Through the greening and demineralization program, which aims to improve the area's air quality, increase vegetation cover and reduce heat islands
  • By submitting an application during a call for projects that aims to support any project with a positive environmental impact, and which meets the predetermined eligibility criteria
