Overview:

About the Foundation

The Finnis Scott Foundation was established under the Will of Lady Montagu Douglas Scott (Valerie Finnis) in 2006.

The Trustees can make 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.

By doing so, they acknowledge the two enduring preoccupations – art collecting and gardening - of Sir David Montagu Douglas Scott, K.C.M.G., O.B.E., (1887-1986) and his wife, Valerie Finnis V.M.H. (1924-2006).

Grants Process

In general the Trustees will only usually consider grants of between £500 and £10,000, although, 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. Grants are not given for expenditure which has already been made.
