Backing the clever ideas that move communities forward

Community building through fresh thinking

Helping people face the future with confidence. That’s what we always strive to do at Aviva. And it’s what we want to continue to do for causes in the UK.

We’ve learnt the causes that make the biggest impact are those that are given the opportunity to innovate and test new ideas without fear of risk. That’s why we’ve evolved the way the Aviva Community Fund works. We’re backing small causes with forward-thinking ideas and providing even more causes with vital support and resources.

Building community

Funding those at the forefront of community progress

Say goodbye to voting season. Going forward, the Aviva Community Fund will deliver funding and support all year-round.

We’re giving our people at Aviva the opportunity to decide the projects we fund, to strengthen our connection to the communities we support. So, every three months from January onwards, £250,000 will be split equally among our UK employees to donate to the projects that matter to them most.  

Applications for eligible causes are open for the first round of funding between 21 January - 11 February. Through Crowdfunder, causes can add to any donations they get from the Aviva Community Fund with public donations.

Target reached? Time to put the idea into action! And, if your charity has another innovative idea, you’re welcome to apply again at any time. 

Pulling in all our resources to push communities forward 

Beyond the funding of forward-thinking ideas, we also want to connect all charities with people and resources that can help them thrive. In particular, we’re focused on sharing the experience, skills and enthusiasm within Aviva, to support all charities through free online resources, networking forums, and volunteering. Working together, we can build stronger communities and have a positive impact across the UK.
