The Aviva Community Fund (ACF) competition has launched! If your organization has an idea for positive change in your community, you can submit now for a chance to share $1
million in funding! There are three project categories: Community Resilience, Community Health, and Community Development and funding is offered in two levels: $50,000 and under for small ideas, and $50,000 to $100,000 for large ideas.
How can your charity submit an idea?
From now until October 6th, anyone registered on the Aviva Community Fund site can submit an idea. Your idea must fall within one of the three categories and two funding levels.
