Sisk Foundation of Buncombe Street United Methodist Church

The Sisk Foundation was established in 1985 in response to a magnificent legacy gift from the estate of J. Kelly Sisk. According to the provisions of the Trust Agreement, grants are made each year from the disbursement of net income from the investment of his gift. It is a privilege to support the work of qualifying organizations as they seek to reach out to and support the needs of people in Greenville County.

The Sisk Foundation has granted over 3.2 million dollars to our community since 2006.
