How do I tell if I’m getting authentic e-mails from St. Jude? I think I’m being spammed.

We periodically send e-mail newsletters to our donors and other St. Jude friends. These are opt-in newsletters, and these messages are always sent with a method to unsubscribe. Some e-mails we send are Hopeline, Math-A-Thon Coordinator Update, and Dream Home Update. If you suspect you are getting unsolicited e-mails please let us know; please e-mail us at donors@stjude.org.

To manage your e-mail preferences, please visit the E-mail Management Center.


Can I link to your Web site?

Sure. Please review our Linking Policy. If you meet those requirements, you can use our public service announcement banner ads as well.

Can I use pictures from your Web site?

No. We discourage the use of our photos, due to sensitive patient privacy agreements we have with patients and their parents. If you’d like to include a patient story on your website, link to our Patient of the Month page at www.stjude.org/kids.

Can I setup my own ebay auction to benefit St. Jude?

You must not use “St. Jude” or “St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital” in your online listing, either in the title of the item or in the description of the auction item. Do not use wording such as “XYZ merchandise to support St. Jude” or “proceeds to support St. Jude”, etc. We suggest use of MissionFish which allows merchandise to be auctioned to benefit St. Jude.


Do you share my information with any third parties?

No. Please view the Privacy Policy for more information.
