Sisk Foundation

The Sisk Foundation was established in 1985 in response to a monumental 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 3.5 million dollars to our community since 2006.

Community Grant Process

The application and instructions are made available on this website during the month of January each year.

Requests must be from Greenville County and funds are for use in Greenville County.

Applications are received and reviewed according to the Guidelines provided in the link below by the Sisk Advisory Council. The Council’s recommendations for funding are presented to the Sisk Trustees for approval.
