We’ve got an exciting new opportunity to share with you about a new community fund giving away up to £25,000 for projects that will make a real difference to local communities. This is ideal for small charities, if you have an idea for a new project, or there’s an existing project that would benefit from additional funding, it’s well worth getting involved to help secure vital funds for your cause.

The Aviva Community Fund offers support and funding for projects to help enhance local communities. You can apply for funding to support all kinds of projects, as long as it is for the greater good of the community. To qualify, your project must make a positive difference to people’s lives in one of the following categories:

Health, disability and wellbeing
Supporting the younger generation
Supporting the older generation
Community support
There are four different funding levels you can apply for, ranging from £1,000 to up to £25,000. The projects will be put forward to a public vote, with the most popular going through to the Finals to be judged by the judging panel.

The fund officially launches today and you can find out more information on the Aviva Community Fund website.

Some key dates for the competition:

1. Submissions will open on 24th March, until 30th April

2. Voting opens on 1st May – 30th May, so this will be the time to get busy promoting your project to as many friends and family as possible to secure their votes

3. The most-voted for projects asking for up to £1,000 will secure their funding. The projects asking for up to £5,000 or more with the most votes will go through to the Finals to be judged by the judging panel

We’ll get back in touch once the fund has launched on 24th March, but for now get your thinking caps on for a worthwhile project to submit! And don’t forget that you can get more information here.
