Other opportunities for fundraising

There are lots of other funding opportunities available out with Girlguiding that can give you and your unit a helping hand.

Aviva Community Fund

Need funding or support for your local unit? The Aviva Community Fund is now open for applications until 9 October.

The Aviva Community Fund will finance over 500 projects across four different fund levels and three categories, giving money to communities across the UK.

If your project gets enough votes and wows our judges, it will be in with a chance of getting those much-needed funds.

It’s open to everyone and there’s up to £25,000 of funding available. Find out more about getting involved here.
