  • Aviva Community Fund [community resilience]

    Created: 04/08/2020

    In response to the current pandemic, the Aviva Community Fund has broadened its eligibility criteria to support causes in addressing the impact of the outbreak. It supports projects that boost the resilience of communities in the face of uncertainty and is investing in two key areas:

    • community resilience; and
    • financial capability and inclusion.

    The focus of this fund is to give small charities the opportunity to innovate and test new ideas without fear of risk. Any projects submitted should be 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 OR covering the core running costs of causes looking to adapt or continue their vital services throughout the COVID-19 outbreak.

    Who can apply?

    Any not-for-profit community organisation whose income is less than £1 million and has existed for at least 12 months. The next deadline for this fund is 13 October 2020.
