The Aviva Community Fund is open for applications. The grant scheme has changed and now uses crowdfunding rather than a public vote to award funds.
The funder is interested in “forward-thinking projects”. So you should apply to test out a new idea. This can include developing a new approach, product or technology, piloting a new scheme, implementing a new initiative, or expanding existing services to a new area or beneficiary group.
Every three months, £250,000 will be shared equally among Aviva’s UK employees to donate to the projects that matter to them most. Each charity can apply for funding of up to a maximum of £50,000 and Aviva employees will decide how the funding is distributed.
- 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.”
