City Bridge Trust supports charitable activity across Greater London. The City of London Corporation is the sole trustee of City Bridge Trust and members of its Court of Common Council form the Trust’s Grants Committee. The Trust’s grants team is based in the City of London’s offices at the Guildhall.

This year's Growing Localities Awards saw a wide range of creative projects enter which are working to use London's green spaces to improve the well-being of its residents. Narrowing down the entries to a shortlist of just twelve proved exceptionally difficult given the quality of this year's entries, and deciding on a winner was even more difficult.
We have awarded the first grants, totalling over £700,000, under our innovative Stepping Stones Fund programme. Launched in November 2014, the programme aims to provide targeted support in the form of grants and risk finance to enterprising charitable organisations that wish to prepare themselves for social investment in order to improve their social outcomes.
Some of the most inspirational philanthropists across the UK
have been awarded Beacon Fellowships at the 9th Beacon Awards for
Philanthropy.Hosted by Kate Adie, the biennial Beacon Awards
celebrate the extraordinary and transformational achievements of
individuals and families who have, each in their own various ways,
brought about lasting social change through their conviction, their
determination and their generosity. The awards celebrate their
exploits with the hope of inspiring others to follow suit.
Six aspiring young journalists have been selected to join a new
series of a TV show which aims to bring an alternative viewpoint to
London's news agenda. Community Channel's London360 is a
weekly 30 minute magazine-style show which focuses on local stories
and shines a light on community-based campaigns. Each episode is
presented through the eyes of young Londoners aged between 18 and
25 who are passionate about the area they live in.
Why would a charity want to become listed on the London Stock
Exchange? Can new financing options be helpful to assist the most
marginalised members of our society? Golden Lane Housing is an
inspiring organisation, whose example may answer those questions.
It is an example of commitment to social impact and ambition to
help more people by learning to use different financing options.
Our Grants Committee meets six times a year. Lists of the recent grants awarded are available here.
