Involvement in the community

The caisse understands the challenges and issues facing its members. With their support, it can provide its fellow citizens with valuable help regarding initiatives aimed at common betterment and the advancement of society.

The Community Development Fund serves to redistribute a portion of the cooperative's surplus earnings to the community. Following a proposal by the board of directors, during the annual general meeting, members decide what portion of the surplus earnings will be paid into the community fund. Through their caisse, members can support causes that are important to them.

Members who sit on the board of directors manage the community fund. Every year, they report on the fund at the annual general meeting.

Your caisse's community involvement

Desjardins caisses support the community's socio-economic development through contributions to the Community Development Fund. At the caisse Annual General Meeting, members agree to deposit a portion of their cooperative's surplus earnings to the fund, to be redistributed in the community. The fund is managed by the caisse Board of Directors. Through this gesture of solidarity, members contibute to the emergence of development projects designed to meet the needs of the community.
