A new decade welcomes in a new Aviva Community Fund
Through the Aviva Community Fund, we celebrate and support charities doing great work all around UK. We've provided thousands of causes with funding, skills and resources, and we've seen up close just how much of an impact this is having on the lives of the people involved.
Now, we want to have an even bigger and more sustainable impact. That’s why we’ve evolved the way the Aviva Community Fund works, delivering quarterly funding and year-round support.
Update: Our criteria has changed
We know that now, more than ever, small charities need our support. So, we've expanded the Aviva Community Fund application criteria to include projects that allow causes to adapt or continue their vital services, so they can help their beneficiaries and communities during this time of need.
Applications are open for the next round of the Aviva Community Fund until 28th July.
We've evolved the way the Aviva Community Fund works, to back small charities with forward-thinking ideas and to provide even more causes with vital support and resources.
Supporting forward-thinking charities
Over the years we’ve learnt that the charities that make the biggest impact are those that have the chance to innovate and test new ideas. The new Aviva Community Fund programme backs the clever ideas that move communities forward, so together we can build a better tomorrow.
Empowering our employees
We’re also excited to give our employees a much bigger role in how we are supporting charities. By getting them more involved with funding, skills-sharing and volunteering, we’ll not only build stronger communities, we’ll also create deeper connections between us and those communities.
Facebook community group
Join the conversation and help your project thrive.
We want to help your cause be as strong and successful as it can be – even if you haven’t received funding. Join our Facebook Community Group to share ideas with other causes, learn new skills, keep up with news and be part of live events run by experts in volunteering, fundraising and more.
Everyone’s a winner
"I am so excited to see that there is so much more out there for our community. Thank you, Aviva. The Facebook community group could potentially bring the community together even if we don’t win. We may win friendships and partnerships!"
Could your organisation do with a helping hand or two? We give every Aviva employee 21 hours each year to switch their day job for community volunteering. So, if your cause could benefit from the skills, expertise or people power of the Aviva workforce, we’d love to hear how our ready and willing volunteers could lend a hand.
