Aviva Community Fund

The Aviva Community Fund supports causes that make a real difference.

You put forward a project that benefits your community, and it could get funding.

The Aviva Community Fund started in 2009. Since then, it's run in Canada, France, Hong Kong, Italy, Poland, Singapore, the UK, Vietnam, China and Ireland.

Since 2009, we have given hundreds of organisations across ten countries the chance to win funding to make a difference in their local communities. Our community fund is currently running in FranceItaly, the UK, Vietnam and Ireland.

Now, more than ever, small charities need our support. That’s why we've broadened the criteria of the Aviva Community Fund in the UK to include applications for projects that let causes adapt or continue their vital services by covering core running costs, so they can help their beneficiaries and communities during this time of need. Visit the Aviva Community Fund website to find out more.

It’s not just about prize funds

The projects support causes such as environment, health, education and inclusion. Winning projects include sports clubs, gardening initiatives, after-school projects and ecological agriculture.

Through sharing our skills and experience, Aviva seeks to empower projects to help even more people, which is done through roadshows, webinars and digital materials.

Aviva Community Fund across the world

The last five years of our Aviva Community Fund programme has supported over 3,000 local projects in ten Aviva markets, investing over £13 million to help build capability and capacity in the charity sector.

Each country has run their Aviva Community Fund according to their particular business focus or need in their local communities.

In 2019 this included Aviva France continuing their ambitious Aviva La Fabrique programme, which saw 46 social entrepreneurs awarded a share of one million euros following over 1.5 million public votes. The Aviva La Fabrique Impact Fund was also set up to allow investors the opportunity to invest in these social enterprises.
