Capitalising on a broker initiative, Aviva
has once again launched its community fund as it reaches out to brokers and offers them a real chance to make a difference in their local community.
The 2017 Aviva
Community Fund allows members of the community and brokers to submit ideas that they believe will make a difference to a charity or local group that they are particularly passionate about. Those selected could secure funding anywhere from £1,000 to £25,000.
According to a statement announcing the project, Aviva
outlined that there has been an 18% drop in people giving up their time to help their local community over the last two years despite the fact that 37% believe uncertain times in recent years have encouraged greater community spirit. Now, according to Tom Daniell, retail marketing director at Aviva
, the company wants to give back with more than 550 groups set to receive funding.
“We are passionate about community wellbeing and believe it is important to work with brokers to support community groups that carry out inspiring work across the UK,” he said. “Over the years we have seen the positive impact that the Aviva
Community Fund can have to a real variety of community groups.
“This year, in total, it will finance over 550 projects across different funding levels ranging from £1,000 up to £25,000, as we believe good projects come in all shapes and sizes.”
