T. Denny Sanford

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The Chronicle of Philanthropy's list of 50 most generous givers in the country last year includes two South Dakotans.

Former Sioux Falls businessman and banker T. Denny Sanford is ranked 20th, at $130.5 million. He gave money to the University of California at San Diego, South Dakota State University and the Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation.

The late Millicent Atkins, of Ipswich, is 50th on the list. She gave $37.5 million to Columbia United Church of Christ Congregational Church, Northern State University and the University of Minnesota.

Dean Connie Geier says Northern State's school of education will be named in honor of Atkins.

The top 50 contributors made donations last year totaling $7.7 billion, plus pledges of $2.9 billion.
