Deadline: Sunday 28 July
The Aviva Community Fund is a quarterly funding competition which allows registered charities to apply for funding of up to £50,000 through their Crowdfunding platform.
Due to COVID-19, Aviva have broadened their criteria to include applications for covering the core running costs of causes looking to adapt or continue their vital services throughout COVID-19 – so they can help their beneficiaries and communities during this time of need.
As well as this, they are looking for projects that fall into one of these two categories:
- Financial capability and inclusion: giving people the tools to become more financially independent
- Community resilience: tackling inequality and improving environments to build more connected, more resilient communities
How it works:
Applications are open all year, with quarterly funding rounds for eligible charities. Funding is available for fresh ideas looking to secure up to £50,000.
All Crowdfunder pages go live on 26 August. Causes can share projects with their networks of supporters to raise public donations.
On 2 September projects open to Aviva Community Fund employee donations. Aviva employees will be able to view projects and between them will share out £250,000 of funding.
You have until 30 September to receive Aviva Community Fund donations. But don’t worry if you’ve not reached your fundraising target. You can keep your page open and continue public fundraising.
These awards are open now and close on Sunday 28 July.
