About Aviva Community Fund

Take part

Eligible causes will be able to submit their projects to the Aviva Community Fund through Crowdfunder. Funding applications are open to projects looking to raise up to £50,000.

We've streamlined the process so that, unlike earlier years, there are no activity categories or funding levels you need to select. If you need any help, we'll guide you through the process with free toolkits and resources.

Take a risk

We've always supported people through life's challenges and opportunities. We know that now, more than ever, small charities need our support. The Aviva Community Fund supports applications for forward-thinking projects that enable causes to adapt their vital services and innovate in this time of need.

If your application is accepted into the next round, your crowdfunding page will go live at the same time as all other eligible causes, so everyone gets an equal opportunity to attract donations.

Take it away

The power is in the hands of Aviva employees to decide how the Aviva Community Fund money is distributed. Between them, they'll have £250,000 of Fund money to donate to the projects that matter to them most.

You'll also have the opportunity to reach out to your networks and the general public to raise your target amount by sharing links through social media and more.

Once you've reached your fundraising target, you can withdraw the funds and get to work.

Is your Idea eligible?

We want to support projects that boost the resilience of communities in the face of uncertainty, so we're investing in two key areas;

• Community resilience: tackling inequality and improving environments to build more connected, more resilient communities

• Financial capability and inclusion: giving people the tools to become more financially independent

We believe that the charities that make the biggest impact are those that are given the opportunity to innovate and test new ideas without fear of risk. That's why we're focusing on funding small charities with forward-thinking ideas. To this end, any projects submitted should be to develop a new approach, product or technology, pilot a new scheme, implement a new initiative, or expand existing services to a new area or beneficiary group.

Your project must also:

• Be submitted by an applicant aged 18 or older

• Be UK based and for the benefit of UK communities

• Not be for the benefit of any one individual

Your organisation must also:

• Be registered in the UK as a charity or community interest company

• Have a bank account in its own name and have been operating for over 12 months

• Have an annual income below £1 million
