This page lists the meetings for The City Bridge Trust Committee.
City Bridge Trust is the grant-making arm of
Bridge House Estates, a fund administered by the City of London
which has its origins in medieval times when finance was needed to
build and maintain Old London Bridge. Bridge House Estates now
maintains the five bridges which cross the Thames into the Square
Mile – Tower Bridge, Blackfriars Bridge, Southwark Bridge,
London Bridge and Millennium Bridge.
Whilst the maintenance of these bridges is
still its prime objective, thanks to the City of London’s
expert management, the Bridge House Estates fund has grown
substantially over the centuries. As a result, City Bridge Trust
was established to make use of funds surplus to bridge requirements
and currently awards grants of around £20 million a year to
charities working in Greater London. The City of London Corporation
is the Trust’s sole trustee and members of its Court of
Common Council form the Trust’s Grants Committee.
Since The Trust began grant-making in 1995, it
has made over 7,000 grants totalling over £1/3 billion. For
