The Aviva Community Fund is back, offering support and funding to causes that make a real difference in local communities. We worked with Aviva on its very first Community Fund and we are thrilled to work with them again.
Last year, the Aviva Community Fund helped hundreds of local projects turn dreams into reality. This year, it aims to help even more.
Now open for submissions, the Aviva Community Fund is offering four funding levels, from up to £1,000 to up to £25,000 to local community projects that will make a positive change in one of the following categories:
• Health and wellbeing
• Skills for life
• Community support
Tom Daniell, Retail Marketing Director at Aviva says: “Over the last three years, we have seen the positive impact that the Aviva Community Fund can have to a real variety of community groups. “This year, it will finance over 500 projects across different funding levels ranging from £1,000 up to £25,000, as we believe good projects come in all shapes and sizes – from buying housing for hedgehogs in Dewsbury, to buying specialist motorbikes which transport lifesaving medical supplies in Lancashire.”
Linda Minnis, CEO at Charities Trust adds: "We worked with Aviva in 2015 on its first Community Fund so we were thrilled when they asked us to work with them again. Our role is to moderate all the projects, do the due diligence on the winners and most importantly, pay out the money. It’s a great initiative and it has an incredible, positive impact at a grassroots level.”
