Aviva Community Fund

Developing and sustaining community life.

Aviva want to support projects that boost the resilience of communities in the face of uncertainty, so they’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

Aviva 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 they’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 project 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

Applications for eligible causes are open for the first round of funding between 21 January – 11 February.

Through Crowdfunder, causes can add to any donations they get from the Aviva Community Fund with public donations.
