Our purpose and vision is to raise money for charity through encouraging, promoting and supporting garden openings, whilst making the whole experience inspiring, rewarding and enjoyable for all involved.
Through our garden openings, Scotland’s Gardens Scheme supports over 250 different charities each year. Beginning in 2018, our Garden Openers may choose a charity(s) to receive up to 60% of their open day takings. Many of these charities are small and local. We hope that this increase, from 40% in past years, will have a positive impact on our local communities and the charities close to our Garden Owners’ hearts. The net remaining 40% of funds raised at our openings is distributed to our beneficiaries who also provide tremendous help to our communities. Click and read more about them below.
