The 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.
The Finnis Scott Foundation offers a bi-annual award to support and promote the practice of botanical painting. Aimed at groups and organisations that are looking to go beyond their day to day activities, the award recognises those who have helped raise the profile of botanical art and seek to further extend their reach to new audiences. Projects might include (but are not limited to) a new education programme or the development of an existing course, exhibition, publication, event or collaborative project.
