Funding and support where it matters

The Aviva Community Fund gives you the chance to vote for a local project or charity close to your heart and help them realise their dreams.

Up to £25,000

With hundreds of awards at 4 levels up to £25,000, you can make a difference by using your 10 votes. Spread them around or give them all to one project you’re really passionate about – it’s down to you.

A helping hand

If you’ve entered a project, check out our tips to help you boost votes and visibility. Pick up social media and PR skills, find out how previous winners gained supporters and learn how to raise extra money if you’re also crowdfunding.

Real lives, real impact

We’ve seen first hand the amazing impact that a great idea, lots of effort and the right support and funding can make to lives and communities.

Community values

Voting is now open and we need your support to help community groups across the UK. Your 10 votes could help provide life-changing skills, regenerate neighbourhoods and provide support for people with mental health issues. I’m passionate because my community shaped me, so get involved and use your votes wisely.

Projects that deliver

The funding we were awarded has allowed us to achieve so much more than we set out to do. We’ve been able to extend the life of our project, allowing us to reach many more veterans and their families for longer. Plus, the effort we put into social media not only helped secure us funding but has boosted ongoing support for our work.
