Finnis Scott Foundation

The Finnis Scott Foundation makes grants to both UK charities and individuals and for any charitable purpose.
The Trustees' current policy is to focus their grant-making in the areas of:
• Horticulture and plant sciences;
• Art; and
• Art history.
The Foundation funds both capital and revenue projects.
Grants between £500 and £10,000 are available. In the financial year ending 31 December 2014 the Foundation awarded 45 grants totalling £358,674. The average award was just under £8,000 and included:
Greenfingers (£6,000);
Clear Village Trust (£1,103);
Vocal Eyes (£2,000);
Cheltenham Art Gallery and Museum (£10,000);
West House Project (£5,000); and
Turquoise Mountain (£5,000)
Preference is given to awarding grants to smaller charities where the grant will have a significant impact.
In the case of private individuals, the Trustees usually require a grant to be made through a sponsoring university or registered charity.
The following documents must be submitted with an application form:
• The organisation's governing document.
• If available, any business plan, project plan or similar document setting out the purpose of the grant.
• The organisation's most recent accounts and annual report.
• The organisation's current budget and any separate project budget.
• Any further documents that are requested.
Applications are considered at quarterly Trustee meetings. Applications should be received at least three weeks before the date of a meeting.
The date of the next Trustee meeting is Wednesday 13 January 2016.
