Aviva Community Fund
Aviva Community Fund has teamed up with Crowdfunder to give UK charities and community interest companies support in forward-thinking causes that help push communities forward. Aviva employees will be able to view projects and between them will share out £250,000 of funding. Each charity can apply for funding of up to a maximum of £50,000 and Aviva employees will decide how the funding is distributed.
Submitted projects must fall within one of the following two key funding areas with forward-thinking ideas:
- Climate Action: Promoting healthy, thriving communities by preventing, preparing for, and protecting against the impacts of climate change
- Financial Wellbeing: Helping people take control of their wellbeing by giving them the tools to be more financially independent and ready for anything.
Applications for Round 3 are now open until 12 July 2022. Applicants must be 18 or over and projects must benefit UK communities rather than any one individual. The criteria for funding have now broadened to include applications for projects that enable causes to adapt or continue their vital services by covering core running costs so that their beneficiaries and communities can be helped during this time of need.
