£50k Aviva grants for small charity community projects

Charities with a turnover of under £1m are invited to apply for funding from the Aviva Community Fund, to support projects aimed at building the resilience of communities.

Supported projects fall into two categories: Community Resilience, eg tackling inequality or improving environments; and Financial Capability and Inclusion, ie helping people to become financially independent. Individual grants will be made up to a value of £50,000.

The Fund is sharing £250,000 per quarter among Aviva employees to assign to the participating project or projects of their choice. Successful applicants will be asked to present their project on the Crowdfunder platform, stating their funding target. Aviva employees and the public will then be able to pledge support via Crowdfunder.

Organisations that achieve their funding target by the set date will then be able to withdraw the money to go ahead with their project. Those who fall short of their target will be given the opportunity to roll their project over to the next funding period.

The deadline for the first funding period is 23.59 on Tuesday 11th February. Projects then need to be posted on Crowdfunder by 3rd March, with the deadline for crowdfunding on 22nd April.
