Thanks to you, we help your community develop and grow!

The caisse has a community development fund that donates part of the cooperative's surplus to support the community's socioeconomic vitality. Acting on a proposal from the board of directors, the members decide at the annual general meeting how much of the surplus should be paid into the fund. This way, they can support causes that are important to them.

The board of directors manages the development fund. Each year, it reports to the annual general meeting.

Below are some projects made possible thanks to you:

  • Mascouche Painting Festival
    Year after year, the caisse continues to enjoy being a partner of this big, spectacular event, which is a local source of pride. This year the festival received $5,000. The caisse held a draw for a painting among festival visitors. Our congratulations to this year's winner, Sylvie Vizioz.

  • Uniatox
    It was a natural fit for Caisse populaire Desjardins Le Manoir to partner with Uniatox, because we care about everyone's well-being and adhere to the values of solidarity and mutual support. We are proud to be ambassadors once again this year with a grant of $1,000.

    Uniatox plays a key role in the community by aiding and assisting men and women of all ages in their fight against drug addition. It offers them essential support and restores their hope and dignity.

    The caisse team boldly adopted the theme of “superheroes” with a smile at the 10th edition of the Parcours-Don event to benefit Uniatox.

  • Education
    Education and academic retention are key components of our mission.
    Education is a fundamental principle of the cooperative model that is central to our mission. That's why it's important for the caisse to continue building alliances and providing over $100,000 in financial support to its community partners: Fondation pour l'encouragement scolaire, Carrefour jeunesse-emploi des Moulins and Desjardins Foundation.

    The caisse also gives talks at schools each year, and our advisors are always on hand to inform kids who open an account of the importance of having good credit.

  • Moore Garden
    Being the major cultural partner of Moore Garden is a great source of pride for the caisse. Moore Garden received $20,000 in financial support. This enchanting site promotes the region with a fabulous garden while serving as a space for learning, performance, creativity and unique, rewarding encounters. A top must-see for everyone!
  • Fête de la famille and drawing contest
    Comité Famille Mascouche is a natural partner for the caisse because of our common vision and interest in young people and families, who enjoy festive and inclusive events thanks to our funding. The organization was given $10,000 to help make its Fête de la famille and winter gathering memorable events.

    The caisse has held a drawing contest for a number of years, and it's always a pleasure to award prizes during the Fête de la famille event so that kids can benefit from both these activities. The $6,000 we provided helped elementary school students in our area take part in the contest and have a wonderful day!
