The Finnis Scott Foundation focuses its grant-making on three areas: horticulture, plant sciences, fine art and art history (pre-2000). Established in 2008, the Foundation commemorates Sir David Montagu Douglas Scott, KCMG, OBE (1887-1986), his wife Valerie Finnis, VMH (1924-2006), and their love of art collecting and gardening.

The last date for receipt of applications is 4pm on 15 September 2023.

UK charities and charitable organisations, including schools and colleges, are eligible to apply for grants to support projects in the areas of horticulture, plant sciences as well as the study, exhibition and conservation of fine art. The Finnis Scott Foundation is especially interested in supporting horticultural training through bursaries and apprenticeships. Applications should be made by the sponsoring institution: individuals may not apply. The Foundation will consider applications for one-off grants up to £10,000, but because of the high demand, most grants are currently £5,000 or less. Exceptionally, when funds permit, grants of as much as £60,000 are made, payable over several years. The next closing date for applications is 4pm on the 15th September 2023.
