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.
Your caisse supports local and regional initiatives in various areas.
Solidarity with the community
Your Caisse expresses its solidarity with the people of the community through the financial and humanitarian support it provides. This cooperative aspect is what sets us apart from other financial institutions. By supporting the various community organizations and associations, we are able to embrace and fulfil our social mission.
The Caisse is present in all spheres of activity: economic development, community and humanitarian services, culture, education, and sports and leisure.
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.
