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.

Your caisse supports local and regional initiatives in various areas (education, health and healthy lifestyle, arts and culture, cooperation, economic development, community services). In 2017, the caisse awarded $38,000 in donations and sponsorships to 50 local organizations.

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, the members of the Caisse Desjardins du Lac-Memphrémagog agreed to contribute $150,000 to the Community Development Fund.
