Aviva Community Fund opens 13th September, closes 11th October

The Aviva Community Fund is a competition which community projects can enter, to be in with a chance of funding.

There are 200 prizes of £1000 each on offer to the projects which receive the most votes.

To enter this level of the competition:

  • your organisation must have an annual income below £100,000, and have existed for at least 6 months
  • your project must create a change that positively impacts the local community, through for example specific purchases, activities or the running costs of a programme

The competition opens on 13th September 2016, and entries must be submitted before noon on 11th October 2016. Your entry can include photographs and a video, to make the maximum impact on the voting public.

Voting takes place between 21st October and 18th November. Each person has 10 votes. The 200 projects with the most votes will receive £1000 each, to be spent during 2017.

For larger organisations, there are also larger amounts of funding available, but there is a longer process to go through, and fewer awards available.
