The Aviva Community Fund can help not-for-profit organisations secure funding, ranging from £1,000 up to £25,000, for a good cause in their community.
Organisations can apply for funding for any project that is for the greater good of the community and makes positive changes to people’s lives in one of four categories. The four categories are Health, disability and wellbeing, Supporting the younger generation, Supporting the older generation and Community support.
Everyone who registers at www.aviva.co.uk/community-fund gets ten votes which can be cast at any time during the voting phase and allocated in any way. Voters can spread them around or use all ten for one project.
For requests of up to £1,000, the finalists’ submitted projects will receive the funding they want, subject to due diligence. For all other funding levels, finalist entries will be reviewed by panels of judges to decide which entries are awarded the funding.
Applicants have until Friday 24 April 2015 to submit their idea online at www.aviva.co.uk/community-fund
