Applications are open for eligible charities. Funding is available for fresh ideas looking to secure up to £50,000. Plus, our Knowledge Library, Facebook Group and volunteer opportunities are available to all.
Submissions close at 23:59 on 5 May. When applying, you’ll see our new eligibility requirements – check these closely to make sure your idea meets the new criteria.
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.
All Crowdfunder pages go live on 27 May. Causes can share projects with their networks of supporters to raise public donations.
On 1 June 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.
You have until 8 July 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.
Reached your fundraising target? Congratulations! You'll have the funds and a whole bunch of new supporters all wanting to help you make your idea a reality.
People have donated, they’ve connected with your cause. They’ll be interested to see how things progress so be sure to keep your donors informed and engaged with the great things you’re achieving.
Crowdfunding is an “all or nothing” process, which means you need to raise 100% of your target to receive your money. It’s vital that you consider carefully what funding target you want to set. Too low and you won’t be able to realistically bring your idea to life; too high and you may be needlessly pushing your ambitions out of reach.
If your project does not reach target, your supporters will be refunded, and your project will not receive funding.
Your Crowdfunder page is your platform for sharing your story to potential donors. Take care to explain your idea as clearly and succinctly as possible. Consider what photographs would help tell your story and whether a video would help you explain. Key points you’ll need to articulate are:
