Charitable Giving

Each year, the Sanford International donates its net tournament proceeds to local charitable organizations supporting children in the Sioux Falls community. In addition to supporting local charities, the Sanford Health Foundation has raised over $400,000 through fundraising activities at the Sanford International to support the Sanford Children’s Hospital. Specifically, these funds support Child Life Programming at the Castle that impact patients like the Sanford Children’s Hospital Ambassador. Since 2018, the Sanford International has given back more than $1.1 million in charitable contributions and has an annual economic impact of over $23 million for the Sioux Falls area.
