T. Denny Sanford Contributes To Foundations Bearing His Name
T. Denny Sanford is the chairman of United National Corporation which is a banking business located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Recently he has contributed more than 160 million dollars collectively to the Sanford Health Foundation, Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute and the Florida Hospital for Children. Much of this contribution is to go toward more research on breast cancer and these contributions are in addition to the 400 million dollars he pledged in 2007 and paid in 2009.
These are not the first acts of philanthropy by Sanford whose name has been added to a couple of the organizations due to his large donations. He was listed as a top 5 philanthropist for all of 2013 and has also pledged more than half of his fortune to charities. These charitable contributions will be made not only during his lifetime, but after his death as well.
Mr. Sanford has donated millions of dollars and pledged far more in the future to various local, national and international charities during his lifetime. Success in business lead him to start giving back to the community and it expanded from that point and continues to this day. His determination to do more for the public good with the fortune he has amassed via hard work and skill is a beacon of hope for many others to follow and the reason he has been chosen as the November recipient of a Good Samaritan Award!
