The Caisse Alliance Fund’s mandate is to participate in the realization of structuring projects that have a positive long-term community impact for a maximum number of people. A financial contribution is granted by the Fund to a group, organization, or non-profit association for the purpose of carrying out a community development project.
A project that has a long-term impact on a community is a structuring project that allows a community to improve the quality of life of its citizens, to promote economic growth or to encourage cultural or linguistic development. A structuring project usually requires new infrastructure or equipment that has a life span of several years. In some cases, a structuring project may also improve or update existing infrastructure or equipment.
Since the Fund aims to have a significant impact in the realization of structuring projects, it will prioritize projects requesting a contribution of $10,000 or more. Projects requiring less than $10,000 should request a donation at their nearest branch.
Applicants can submit a request for funding as of today.
Truth and Reconciliation Fund
The purpose of the Caisse Alliance Truth and Reconciliation Fund is to honour missing Indigenous children and residential school survivors, their families and their communities. Public commemoration of the tragic and painful history of residential schools and their lasting legacy is an essential part of the reconciliation process.
Each year, the Fund receives $6,000 ($1,000 per region) from Caisse Alliance to invest in community-based projects that honour residential school survivors, their families and communities or promote the history and cultures of Indigenous peoples.
Applicant organizations may request funding starting September 1, 2022.
