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.

The Défi Coop group first requested financial aid to purchase a used bioreactor, which costs around $5,000. The Caisse chose instead to give them a larger donation of $13,000 to purchase a new bioreactor. Thanks to the bioreactor, which will be used to compost the school's putrescible waste, the Défi Coop group received a Palme verte award from the Montréal Nature Museums Foundation. The Défi Coop group is also a national finalist for the Québec Entrepreneurship Contest.
