The Aviva Community Fund delivers funding and support all year-round. Every three months they split £250,000 among their UK employees to donate to the projects that matter to them most.

Here’s how the Aviva Community Fund will work:
Step 1: Take part
Applications are open all year, with quarterly funding rounds for eligible charities. Funding is available for fresh ideas looking to secure up to £50,000. Plus, their Knowledge Library, Facebook Group and volunteer opportunities are available to all.
Step 2: Take a close look
Submissions for round 4 close at 23:59 on 13th October. When applying, you’ll see their new eligibility requirements – check these closely to make sure your idea meets the new criteria.
Step 3: Ready to take off
Submissions will be reviewed for eligibility. You can use this time to look through the support and resources on offer to help you prepare and make the most of your campaign.
Step 4: Take it away!
All Crowdfunder pages go live on 10 November. Causes can share projects with their networks of supporters to raise public donations.
Step 5: Take advantage of the fund
On 17 November projects open to Aviva Community Fund employee donations. Aviva employees will be able to view projects and between them will share out £250,000 of funding.
Step 6: Take your time
You have until 11 December to receive Aviva Community Fund donations. But don’t worry if you’ve not reached your fundraising target. You can keep your page open and continue public fundraising.
Step 7: Take it to the next level
