AVIVA Community Fund

The Aviva Community Fund opens for applications on the 11th September 2018. Community organisations and schools will be able to apply for funding of up to £25,000 to support projects falling into one of the following three categories:

  • Environment;
  • Health and Wellbeing;
  • Skills for Life.

There are four funding levels:

  • Up to £1,000 (400 awards)
  • Up to £5,000 (78 awards)
  • Up to £10,000 (44 awards)
  • Up to £25,000 (16 awards)

Applicants will need support from their community for their application in the form of votes and the most voted for applications will go through to the final to be judged. Every finalist in the £5,000, £10,000 or £25,000 funding levels that does not win an award will receive £500. All projects also have the chance to raise more money for their project through a crowdfunding campaign that will run in parallel with their Aviva Community Fund campaign.

The fund is open to individuals, schools and not-for-profit organisations meeting the eligibility criteria. Applicants under the age of 18 (but over 13 as at 14th August 2018) can submit an entry to the Awards but must provide the consent of an appropriate adult associated with the project they are entering.

11 September – 9 October Project submissions
