The caisse has a help fund that serves to redistribute a portion of the cooperative's surplus earnings to the community: the Community Development Fund. 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.
