important to your community. It’s open to everyone, whether you have a
connection with Aviva or not. We want you to enter a project for your community
and tell us what a difference these funds could make. Get enough votes from
friends, family and supporters in your community and your project could make it
to the Finals, where a judging panel will award the funds.
