What percentage of what I donate actually benefits the children?


On average, over the last three years, 83 cents of every dollar received has supported the research and treatment at St. Jude. The budgeted daily operating cost of St. Jude is $2 million, and approximately 75% of the budgeted costs of St. Jude are covered by public contributions. 

Because the majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributors, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most — saving kids regardless of their financial situation.
