Backing the clever ideas that move communities forward

Community building through fresh thinking

Building stronger, more resilient communities across the UK: that’s what we’re striving towards at Aviva, and it’s how we want to continue to help small charities and community causes.

We’ve learnt the causes that make the biggest impact are those that are given the opportunity to test innovative ideas and explore new sustainable strategies without fear of risk. That’s why the Aviva Community Fund backs the clever ideas that move communities forward and provides even more causes with vital support and resources.

A boost for those leading the way on climate action

Climate change continues to impact people and communities, but the good news is, we have people fighting for the future of our planet – and we’re giving them some extra support. 

In the last quarter of 2021, an extra £150,000 will be donated by the Aviva Community Fund.

Pulling in all our resources to push communities forward 

Beyond the funding of forward-thinking ideas, we also want to connect all charities with people and resources that can help them thrive. In particular, we’re focused on sharing the experience, skills and enthusiasm within Aviva, to support all charities through free online resources, networking forums, and volunteering. Working together, we can build stronger communities and have a positive impact across the UK.
