The Caisse has a help fund that serves to redistribute a portion of the cooperative's surplus earnings to the community. Following a proposal by the Board of Directors, members decide, during the Annual General Meeting, what portion of the surplus earnings will be paid into the help fund. With the help of their caisse, members can support causes that are important to them.

The members who sit on the Board of Directors manage the help fund. Every year, they report on the fund during the Annual General Meeting.

At the 2018 Annual General Meeting on April 24, 2018, members of Caisse Desjardins Thérèse-De Blainville confirmed the distribution of 2017 surplus earnings, which includes an amount of $100,800 earmarked for the Community Development Fund.
