Funding and support where it matters

The Aviva Community Fund gives you the chance to secure funding for a cause or charity close to your heart.
Simply let us know about a project for your community organisation and the difference the money could make.

Up to £25,000

With awards from £1,000 to £25,000, this is your chance to gain vital funding to boost a local project that matters to you. It doesn’t matter whether your cause is large or small. We believe worthy projects come in all shapes and sizes.

A helping hand

We’ll arm you with tips and guidance to help make your entry as successful as possible. Pick up social media skills, find out how to create a buzz around what you’re doing and learn how to raise extra money through 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.

Your community

Is there something in your local area that needs action or support? We’ve seen first hand the difference that a great idea, lots of effort and the right funding can make to lives and communities. To help you, we’ve got guides for making a successful entry, raising awareness and drumming up votes.

A worthwhile project

It’s simple. We’re looking for projects that bring greater good to their community. What that means is totally up to you. It could be equipment for a children’s sports team. Or it could be training or mentoring for disadvantaged or vulnerable groups. Whatever it is, we can help you to pick up new skills and give your project every chance of success.

New this year

We want to do all we can to help your project be a success and make positive change – even if you don’t secure funding. So we’ve added some tools we think could make a difference.

Get crowdfunding

This year we’re partnering with Crowdfunder UK to give you the chance to raise extra funds for your project as part of the competition. As you collect votes you’ll also be able to choose to crowdfund and turn your support into pledges.

Facebook community group

We’re setting up a Facebook community group so that you’ll be able to chat about your experiences and share tips and advice. We’ll feature projects and the people behind them, including lots of great guidance to help your cause stand out.

Making a successful submission

Find hints, tips and advice on how to make your project stand out from the crowd, plus get inspired by past winners.
