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.
To optimize its involvement in the community, the Caisse has adopted a policy to guide the attribution and management of donations and sponsorships..
Associations, groups, institutions, organizations, individuals or promoters seeking financial support from the Caisse are invited to read the policy before applying for a donation or sponsorship.
All requests for assistance must be made using the application form. Please save the form on your computer hard drive and submit your completed form to us by email at the specified address.
