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.

In 2008, members of Caisse populaire Desjardins de Neuville agreed to contribute $25,000 to the Community Development Fund.

Thanks to the Community Development Fund, the Caisse was able to contribute $10,000 in 2008 to help expand the Félicité-Angers library (a commitment to donate $30,000 over 3 years was made), $500 to purchase new children's books, $500 for the Fondation de l'école secondaire Donnacona and $1,682 for the Portneuf en forme program.
