St. Jude Young Professionals of Chicago unites Chicago’s leaders of tomorrow to help advance cures for pediatric cancer by engaging new donors, supporters and sponsors. We also provide young professionals with tools to evaluate their career goals, improve their professional image and create a lifelong and diverse professional network. Over the past 20 years, St. Jude Young Professionals of Chicago has raised more than $1,000,000 to support St. Jude patients and their families. 


Start a fundraiser


Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for travel, treatment, housing or food. 

  1. One pair of crutches

    Crutches sized especially for children help them maneuver during treatment. Raising just $100 can help St. Jude provide the tools necessary for our young patients to stay mobile.

  2. One red blood cell transfusion

    Children undergoing treatment for cancer and other life-threatening diseases often need transfusions. The funds you raise can help St. Jude provide the best care and treatment for patients.

    1 red blood transfusion
  3. One hour of physical therapy

    Physical therapy helps ensure every child treated here enjoys the highest quality of life possible.

    1 hour of physical therapy
  4. Two days of oxygen

    During treatment, St. Jude patients may need oxygen to help their bodies function properly and aid in healing. Raising $750 can help cover the cost of two days of oxygen for a St. Jude patient.

    Patient family necessities for 20
  5. Patient family necessities for 20

    Parents who bring their children to St. Jude often leave home in a hurry and forget to pack day-to-day necessities, such as shampoos, razors, deodorant, toothbrushes and lotion. Your fundraising goal of $1,000 can ensure that parents at Tri Delta Place, our short-term housing facility, can obtain these essentials free of charge.
