Ness Family honored by SDSU Foundation as 2015 Philanthropic Family of the Year

Larry and Diane Ness of Yankton were honored April 23 by the South Dakota State University Foundation as the 2015 Philanthropic Family of the Year. The award, created in 2012, “acknowledges exceptional generosity to diverse causes by a family that serves as an inspiration to others to support South Dakota State University.”

The award was announced at the Foundation’s annual Donor Celebration in Frost Arena. With more than 800 in attendance, it was the second-largest Donor Celebration ever held at SDSU.

Larry and Diane Ness are members of the Theodore and Esther Schultz Society that recognizes lifetime commitments of more than $5 million to SDSU. The Ness' provided the leadership gift that will help launch the Ness Division of Management and Economics at SDSU in the fall of 2015. In presenting the Philanthropic Family of the Year honor, President David L. Chicoine said, "Their leadership, their incredible passion, their generosity, and their sharing of time and treasure has changed this university."

Larry Ness is chairman and CEO for First Dakota National Bank, which has locations in 12 South Dakota communities and three Nebraska locations. Larry is a 1969 SDSU graduate; Diane earned her degree in 1970.

They were joined by more than 20 family members and bank employees at the recognition dinner.

The previous winners of the Philanthropic Family of the Year are the Dale and Pat Larson family of Brookings, the Les and Wanda Roberts family of Ashton, S.D., and the Bob and Pat Fishback and Van and Barb Fishback families of Brookings.
