In keeping with its values, the caisse is dedicated to promoting the economic well-being of individuals and communities. Giving back to the community is part of our mission as a cooperative organization.
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:
To submit a project and benefit from the fund, start by reading the caisse's policy outlining its environmental commitments for the public. Its clearly defined criteria ensure equal access to members.
Applications for the greening and demineralization program are processed continuously, while those submitted as part of a call for projects are processed every 3 months by the committee responsible.
