FUNDING: Aviva Community Fund – next deadline 1 February 2022

This is a quarterly funding competition where registered charities can apply for up to £50,000 through the Crowdfunder platform.

Every three months, Aviva splits £250,000 among their UK employees to donate to the projects that matter to them most.

In this round, they want to support projects that boost the resilience of communities in the face of uncertainty and will be supporting projects in two priority areas:

  • Climate Action – Promoting healthy, thriving communities by preventing, preparing for and protecting against the impacts of climate change.
  • Financial Wellbeing- Helping people to take control of their wellbeing by giving them the tools to be more financially resilient and independent.

Projects must also be raising funds to develop a new approach, product or technology, pilot a new scheme, implement a new initiative, or expand existing services to a new area or beneficiary group. All beneficiaries must be in the UK.

Once applications have been submitted, applicants will need to create a fundraising page on Crowdfunder that Aviva employees can browse and donate funds to.  Applicants can also showcase their projects to raise additional public donations.
