THE FINNIS SCOTT FOUNDATION

A GRANT-MAKING FOUNDATION

Home

Who We Are

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).

In the last five years, over one million pounds has been given away in grants to a great variety of projects...
