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.
Even thought we're well-established in our community, Caisse du Plateau-Mont-Royal works directly with several neighbouring caisses, particularly in donations and sponsorship. In fact, we collaborate on many regional initiatives whether in arts and culture or projects affecting youth and families. Montreal International Documentary Festival (RIDM Festival), Montreal Museums Day, Fantasia Festival, The Eurêka! Festival and the Zero Waste Festival are just a few examples.
During Co-op Week that is held every year in mid-October, a hundred or so employees from Plateau-Mont-Royal, du Quartier-Latin and Complexe Desjardins volunteer at the Refuge des jeunes de Montréal for a week—because cooperation is who we are!
Caisse Desjardins du Plateau-Mont-Royal reiterates its commitment to the environment with a unique project!
Thanks to the Desjardins partout! project, the Caisse encourages urban, residential and commercial agricultural projects that:
The project must be sustainable, such as green walls, or the installation of a green roof, a rainwater collection barrel, solar panels, etc.
This project is subsized through the Community Development Fund at Caisse Desjardins du Plateau-Mont-Royal and is for all members wishing to reduce their ecological footprint.
In the interest of community development, Caisse populaire Desjardins du Mont-Royal offers people of limited means the possibility of obtaining a small loan. This comes as a result of an association with the Option Consommateurs organization through the "Neighbourhood Loan" program. For more information, please contact Option Consommateurs.
