The Foundation can make grants for any charitable purpose. However, the current focus is on horticulture and plant sciences, as well as art and art history, reflecting the primary interests of the Foundation's instigators - Sir David Montagu Douglas Scott KCMG OBE and his wife, Valerie Finnis VMH. The Trustees will only usually consider grants of between £500 and £10,000 although, exceptionally, larger grants may be considered at their discretion. Both corporate and private individuals may apply.

The Foundation's grants programme is quite separate from the Finnis Scott Award (click here for information) which is administered by the Professional Gardeners' Trust.
