Grants of up to £50,000 available for Community Projects (UK)
Aviva has launched the next round of its Community Fund. Aviva has teamed up with the fundraising platform Crowdfunder to offer funding of up to £50,000 to small charities, schools and community interest groups in the UK with innovative ideas that benefit their community. Every three months from January 2020 onwards, £250,000 will be split equally among Aviva’s UK employees to donate to the projects that matter to them most.
Aviva wants to support projects that boost the resilience of communities in the face of uncertainty and will be supporting projects in two key 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.
To take part the project 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.
The next closing date for applications is the 1st February 2022. Click here for more information
