The Bridgman Ridge Community Trust provides an opportunity for local community, cultural, and recreational groups to seek a grant/donation to assist in the provision of services to the Singleton Local Government Area.

The program was introduced 10 years ago as part of the Bridgeman Ridge Community Trust, which was established in line with the development of the subdivision with $1,000 from each block sold added to the fund.

Since then, a total of 37 local community groups have shared in almost $110,000 of much deserved funding towards a worthy list of projects.

The Bridgman Ridge Community Trust is overseen by directors of Bridgman Ridge Holdings Pty Ltd, Brad and Stephen Weeks, as well as the Mayor of Singleton, Cr Sue Moore and Singleton Council General Manager Jason Linnane.



Grant funds are not used for the payment of internal overheads of organisations, businesses or educational institutions.
