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 the 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.

Since it was founded in 2002, the Caisse contributed over $700,000 in donations and sponsorships.

Making money work for people

The creation of the Community Development Fund, active caisse participation in key socio-economic development projects and the offer of solidarity products to needy members are all ways we contribute to local and regional development. They effectively illustrate the difference between caisses, financial service cooperatives, and other financial institutions.

Caisses Desjardins de Bedford, Brome-Missisquoi and Farnham collaborated to establish a new Policy on the Granting of Sponsorships and Donations and the Community Development Fund, which includes a new online application form. In order to standardize our practices, requests will be processed by the 3 caisses at the same time, 4 times a year.

The new policy is a concrete example of intercooperation, a new permanent value adopted by Desjardins at the 21st Congress of Elected Officers in 2013.
