Commitment

Aviva Community Fund

Supporting causes that make a real difference

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.

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

Since 2009, we have given hundreds of organisations across ten countries the chance to win funding to make a difference in their local communities. In 2020 the community fund is running in Italy, the UK, France and Ireland. Following a successful pilot in 2019, a new look Aviva Community Fund officially launched in the UK in January 2020, in partnership with Crowdfunder UK, and runs on a quarterly cycle.

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.
