Have you selected the right entity type?

I've selected the wrong wallet type, can you help?

YES... Just send us an email and we can reset your wallet so you can start again.

My entity type isn't listed?

If your entity is a School or a Church please set up you wallet using the charity arm, this might be a "PTA" or "Friends of" for example. You will have submitted these details when you first applied for the Aviva Community Fund. Remember to be applicable for the Aviva funding you must be a:
