City Bridge Trust

The elected City of London Corporation supports and promotes the UK-based international finance and business sector – and also supports London’s communities, its green spaces and its heritage.  The City of London Corporation’s charity, City Bridge Trust, is London’s largest independent grant-making trust, distributing around £18m annually to charitable organisations working to reduce disadvantage in London. 

The City Bridge Trust’s origins can be traced back to the 12th Century when funds were raised to build the first stone bridge across the River Thames – London Bridge.  Today, the City of London Corporation remains responsible for the maintenance of this bridge and of Blackfriars Bridge, Southwark Bridge , Tower Bridge and the Millennium Bridge.  Since 1995, the Trust has been able to make funds surplus to these bridge requirements available to support charitable work in London.

Our programmes set out to increase respect and understanding between people of different backgrounds and faiths, encourage both the quantity and quality of philanthropy and offer support to the communities and causes we care about.
