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 caisse encourages you to support the Fondation des artistes and its partners whose mission is to obtain one-time financial assistance for artists living in emergency or crisis situations. The amounts disbursed are used to subsidize the basic needs of the artists and their families, such as food, lodging, school-related fees for kids and medical fees.
