Growing giving with Aviva

Growing giving with Aviva


Corporate responsibility and sustainability are foundational for the Aviva business with key programmes focused on:

  • Acting on climate change and targeting Net Zero by 2040
  • Building future communities to help people create brighter futures
  • Embedding sustainability as integral to how the business operates

Charities Trust has proudly partnered with the Aviva Sustainability team since 2013, processing £millions in funds for the UK charity sector in that time.

Previous appeals have focused on climate justice, poverty & hardship and disadvantaged young people.

Engaging employees and supporting Aviva’s local communities

Charities Trust supports Aviva across a number of different giving initiatives that form part of it’s sustainability and corporate responsibility programmes.

We administer Aviva’s award winning Payroll Giving scheme which enables employees to donate to the charities and causes they care about, regularly and tax-efficiently. Plus we look after Match Giving where individuals and teams are encouraged to fundraise with Aviva boosting their efforts.

Aviva’s Broker Community Fund is an initiative also administered by Charities Trust. The programme offers year-round funding and support for a range of causes and projects that help local communities to strengthen, grow, and work towards a brighter and more sustainable future.

Brokers are invited to put forward causes they care about with winning entries receiving prizes ranging from £500 to £20,000.

Charities Trust helps to manage applications, provides due diligence on prospective winners and distributes agreed funds in a timely and compliant way.
