During the COVID-19 outbreak, have you had to shift your focus? Have you had to adapt the way you run your charity? Is it challenging to correctly equip your staff/volunteers to work remotely? These are challenging times for many small charities.

Thatís why for this quarter only Aviva, have broadened their ĎAviva Community Fundí criteria to include applications for covering the core running costs of causes looking to adapt or continue their vital services throughout COVID-19, so they can help their beneficiaries and communities during this time of need.

Each charity can apply for funding of up to a maximum of £50,000.
Applications are now open until 5 May 2020.

Whatís the process?

Click the link here to view Avivaís process  which explains each step of the Aviva Community Fund. This includes key dates and deadlines for submitting your project, when your project will be reviewed, and of course, when you could, if successful, receive your funding.

Aviva Community Fund is powered by Crowdfunder, so your application will have its own Crowdfunding page. Itís important to be realistic with how much funding you apply for. This is because crowdfunding is an "all or nothingĒ process, which means you need to raise 100% of your target to receive your money, otherwise your supporters will be refunded, and your project will not receive any funding.

To be eligible, your organisation must:

  • be a UK registered charity, a registered community interest company or a registered community benefit society
  • be based in the UK
  • have existed for at least 12 months at the time of submission
  • have an annual income of no more than £1,000,000 (averaged over three years)
  • have a bank account in its own name
  • be a living wage employee (if the organisation employs people)
  • have an active board of trustees or directors

Before submitting an idea take a careful look through the complete eligibility checklist here.

You have until 23:59 on 5 May 2020 to submit your funding application.
