Applications are now open!
Applications are now open for the next round of the Aviva Community Fund until 6th July.
Here’s how the Aviva Community Fund will work:
Step 1: Take part
Applications are open all year, with quarterly funding rounds for eligible charities. Funding is available for fresh ideas looking to secure up to £50,000. Plus, our Knowledge Library, Facebook Group and volunteer opportunities are available to all.
Step 2: Take a close look
Submissions for round 3 close at 23.59 on 6 July When applying, you’ll see our new eligibility requirements – check these closely to make sure your idea meets the new criteria.
Step 3: Ready to take off
Submissions will be reviewed for eligibility. You can use this time to look through the support and resources on offer to help you prepare and make the most of your campaign.
Step 4: Take it away!
All Crowdfunder pages go live on 10 August. Causes can share projects with their networks of supporters to raise public donations.
Step 5: Take advantage of the fund
On 17 August projects open to Aviva Community Fund employee donations. Aviva employees will be able to view projects and between them will share out £250,000 of funding.
Step 6: Take your time
You have until 14 September to receive Aviva Community Fund donations. But don’t worry if you’ve not reached your fundraising target. You can keep your page open and continue public fundraising.
Step 7: Take it to the next level
Reached your fundraising target? Congratulations! You’ll have the funds and a whole bunch of new supporters all wanting to help you make your idea a reality.
Step 8: Take them on a journey
People have donated, they’ve connected with your cause. They’ll be interested to see how things progress so be sure to keep your donors informed and engaged with the great things you’re achieving.
