Finnis Scott Foundation – 20th September 2019 (UK)

Established under the Will of Lady Montagu Douglas Scott (Valerie Finnis) in 2006, the Finnis Scott Foundation makes grants for any charitable purpose, but their present policy is to focus grant-making in the areas of horticulture and plant sciences, as well as fine art and art history.  The funding is open to charities and charitable organisations, including school Parent Teacher Associations.

Grants of between £500 and £10,000 are available. Exceptionally, larger grants may be considered at the Trustees’ discretion. Preference is given to making grants to smaller charities where the grant would have a significant impact. The Foundation funds both capital and revenue projects.

Previous organisations supported include;

  • Flower Pod – a horticulturally based Social Enterprise in Southwell, Nottinghamshire.
  • Rhyl Primary School PTA
  • The Horticultural Therapy Trust
  • Hestercombe Gardens Trust

The Trustees meet on a quarterly basis; the next meeting is on the 16th October 2019. Apply by the 20th September 2019 for this meeting.
