Aviva Community Fund
One of our Insurer partners, Aviva provide a community Fund giving you the chance to secure funding for your cause. The fund provides grants of between £1,000 and £25,000.
As long as the community project is a non profit venture, then it does not matter if it is an existing plan or a new piece of work for your group.
the exciting news (and why we are blogging about it) is that as well as the generic community fund, Aviva have set aside some funds for projects that have been backed by brokers. This means that projects that we support have an extra chance to win from the exclusive Aviva broker partner prize pot! In that pot, there are 30 awards of £1,000, 16 awards of up to £5,000; 4 awards of £10,000 and 2 awards at the top limit, £25,000.
We have to work quickly. Project submissions are open until the 10th October and following a public vote, the winners will be announced on 28th November. We will be speaking to some clients in the coming week to see if we can support their entry. Please feel free to get in touch and suggest a project that you have too. We would be happy to work with you on a submission to this Community Fund and hopefully secure some resources for your community project.
There are four categories that community groups can submit to:
- Health and Wellbeing
- Skills for Life
