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.

Every year, your caisse supports numerous community, local and regional initiatives that promote values associated with cooperation, education, health care, healthy lifestyles, economic development, culture, humanitarian efforts, community services and the integration of immigrants.

Caisse Desjardins de Bordeaux–Cartierville–Saint- Laurent is proud to support local organizations and community-led projects, therefore helping to strengthen the social fabric of the community.

Caisse members can redistribute a portion of surplus earnings for each fiscal year in the form of donations and sponsorships. Over the years, hundreds of thousands of dollars have been reinvested in the local and regional community.

Significant development projects were also carried out through contributions from the Community Development Fund.

To apply for a donation or sponsorship, please read our donation and sponsorship policy and send us the application form. Applications are processed within 4 to 6 weeks.

Community development

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.
