St. Jude unveils corporate partnership display


St. Jude corporate partner display

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is fortunate to have many corporate partners raising funds through national and regional promotions like the Thanks and Giving® campaign and the St. Jude Halloween promotion, as well as workplace giving donations from employees and company matching gifts.

As a way to specially recognize these companies, a display wall was recently unveiled near the hospital’s main lobby. The wall recognizes all corporate partners who have raised funds or provided direct budget-relieving support in excess of $1 million on behalf of St. Jude and continue to do so annually at the $250,000 level or greater.

St. Jude National Outreach Director Marlo Thomas and ALSAC/St. Jude Board member Tony Thomas, the children of hospital founder Danny Thomas, were fundamental to this idea and were involved in the design and approval process.

The wall recognizes partners in four categories, each representing a different level of annual giving.
