About the Institute

Sanford Institute of Philanthropy at Augustana University

Established through a generous gift to National University from philanthropist and businessman T. Denny Sanford, the Sanford Institute of Philanthropy is housed at Augustana University in Sioux Falls and National University in La Jolla, California, to train existing and future nonprofit leaders. The Institute’s unique approach to philanthropy applies proven business principles and a fundraising focus to cause organizations with the aim of maximizing their positive impact in our communities.

"It was great to hear first-hand experiences from some very successful fundraisers."

- Tom Kelley, President of Gage Brothers
