With funding from £1,000 up to £25,000 available, it gives local projects the chance to win funding that could change lives within their community.
Since it started in the UK, the Aviva Community Fund has given money to 877 projects. Could yours be one of the lucky ones this year?
Do you know a local community organisation that could use some funding for a project? It could be the project you voted for last year or another project altogether. Start spreading the word to all the good causes close to your heart now to give them a head start!
How the competition works
Whether you’re looking to solve a problem or speed up an ongoing project, this is your chance to make a real difference to your local community. And it all starts with your great idea…
- Put your thinking cap on. What project does your organisation need financial support for that will make a positive impact in your community?
- Enter your project. Fill in the short entry form. There are four categories you can enter, and four levels of funding to choose from.
- Rally your supporters. Promote your project to as many friends, family members and neighbours as possible to get their votes.
- Fingers crossed… The projects with the most votes will become finalists and judged before the winners are announced.
Let their experts help you create a compelling entry
You need to get as many votes as possible to make it through to the finals, so it’s important to make your project entry stand out.
They have experts on hand, Heidi Greensmith and Nina Ahmed, who can help you craft a great story and bring it to life with brilliant photography. A master film storyteller, writer and director, Heidi shows you how to make a short film using your smartphone. As a journalist and wordsmith, Nina shares top tips on how to tell a compelling story to make your entry shine.
They’ve also created a helpful video which takes you step-by-step through the submission process.
