Inverurie Youth Sports Foundation (IYSF) is a charitable foundation founded by local entrepreneur Steven Ferguson & his family.

Steven and Wendy Ferguson have been inspired to support and promote the future development of youth in sport within the Garioch area.

The IYSF would like to welcome applications for funding to help support the development of youth in sport. We have set our boundary, as the Garioch area but applications from outside the area may be considered.
