Desjardins has a long history of supporting local youth. This is why Caisse de Gatineau is pleased to join the concerted effort being made across Desjardins toward youth outreach.
In an effort to teach children the importance of budgeting and good credit habits, the caisse offers the School Caisse program to local schools. The program provides students with an easy and systematic way to save money. Students who make at least 7 deposits to their School Caisse account during the reference year receive a $10 youth dividend.
Caisse de Gatineau contributes to the Desjardins Foundation, which paid out $2.5 million in 2022 to help kids stay in school and reach their full potential.
Caisse de Gatineau is proud to announce that 12 of our student members were awarded Desjardins Foundation scholarships in 2023.
The caisse offers financial products that Desjardins specially designed for young post-secondary students.
