Finnis Scott Foundation

Although the Finnis Scott Foundation may award grants for any charitable purpose, in practice its policy is to concentrate its grant-making on:
o Horticulture and plant sciences;
o Fine art; and
o Art history.
Revenue and capital grants of between £500 and £10,000 are available. Occasionally larger grants are made. There is no specific requirement for match funding. Preference is given to support smaller charities where the grant would have a significant impact.
In the event of awards to individuals, the Foundation normally requires a grant to be made through a registered charity or higher education institution.
Applications may be submitted at any time and are considered at quarterly Trustee meetings. Applications should be received at least three weeks before the date of a meeting.The two remaining meeting dates for 2017 are:
o Wednesday 12th July 2017 – forms to be returned to the administrator by Friday16th June; and
o Wednesday 18th October 2017 - forms to be returned to the administrator by Friday 22nd September.
Application forms are available to download from the Foundation's website.
The following documents should also be included:
o The organisation's governing document;
o If available, any business plan, project plan or similar document setting out the purpose of the grant;
o The organisation's most recent accounts and annual report;
o The organisation's current budget and any separate project budget; and
o Any further documents that are requested.
