To date, philanthropist Denny Sanford has given nearly $1 billion to Sanford Health to care for people around the world and to develop the next generation of treatments and cures.

His $400 million gift to Sanford Health in 2007 — which stands as the largest known donation ever given to a U.S. health care organization —transformed the organization from a small regional provider into one of the largest health systems in the nation.

With a compassionate heart and a generous spirit, Mr. Sanford continues to be a driving force in modern medicine. His philanthropy enables Sanford Health researchers and clinicians to think big and pursue bold, innovative endeavors at a pace not otherwise possible.
