Grant Summary

Scotland’s Gardens Scheme’s Guest Charity Grants will provide funding for projects that are concerned with the physical, mental and emotional well-being of adults and/or children across Scotland. The projects must be directly associated with gardens and/or gardening and clearly indicate the positive impact that they will bring to health and wellbeing.

Grant Amount

Funding for up to £5,000 is available. We ask for a considered financial summary justifying the amount requested and assuring that the project proposed can be realistically accomplished within the proposed timeframe.

Application Cycle

Applications may be made between now and 31st December 2019 in time for consideration at the Trustees Meeting in late March 2020. Notification will be made by mid-April and the monies are preferably to be spent in that year. We would ask for a report on how the money has been used, to be published in our annual Guidebook of garden openings. This is produced each autumn with publication early the following year.
