Ferguson Bequest Fund

Summary

The principle activities of the fund are the provision of grants for the maintenance and repair of church buildings throughout Scotland with priority to churches in the west and south west of Scotland. Support is also given for new initiatives and projects in Christian Mission. It continues to make grants towards funding university fees particularly on post graduate courses which could assist candidates for the ministry, and grants are also made to Schools and Sunday Schools in Irvine to assist in purchase of books and equipment for imparting religious education.
