Aviva Community Fund Lends a Helping Hand

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Aviva Community Fund for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

One of the things that I love the most about living in Canada is how the social safety net helps protect all Canadians.  The other thing that I love is that there are some awesome companies out there that do their best to help support community programs.  My favorite coffee shop helps with youth hockey and sending kids to summer camp.  Aviva helps individual community programs with both funding and raising awareness through the Aviva Community Fund.

Aviva 2What’s great is that there are often fledgling organizations out there trying to get started.  They don’t necessarily need repeat grants, but just a start in the right direction.  Aviva helps organizations with grants of different sizes depending on the size of the idea.  In fact, the criteria are pretty simple.  The idea should be for the greater good of the community, have a good budget plan, be completed or well underway by the end of 2013, and be Canadian.  (I love the “be Canadian” aspect!)

Aviva 1 I’m really excited to see some of the groups that are asking for votes.  The one that I’m most thrilled to see is the request for funds to clean up a park at Two Mile, BC.  It’s a tiny village, and every community (regardless of size) should have a safe space for children to play and for people to gather.  A safe park is something that I’ve begun to take for granted, but not everyone has that same luxury.  It shouldn’t be a luxury; every kid needs a place to run and play safely.  They’ve got my vote!

Do you have an idea that you’d like to get started in order to make your community a better place?  Submit your idea to Aviva Community Fund by registering and filling out the entry form.  (Registry is painless; you can even use your Facebook ID!)   Keeping up to date with the contest is super easy.  All you need to do is Like Aviva Community Fund or Follow @Aviva on Twitter.  So stop by today and make sure you vote for the cause that means the most to you!

  1. This is TERRIFIC!!

  2. One of my best friends is Canadian and the more I hear about Canada and the programs they have, the fonder I am of it. This is a terrific initiative!

  3. Love this program! I am not from Canada but I did like the Facebook page and followed on Twitter. Programs like these are so important to our children and our future. We must keep our communities safe. Thanks for this great post!
