Valentine's Day donation ideas
Valentine’s Day is an annual celebration of love. Popular culture often associates it with romantic love, full of chocolates, flowers and presents. But Valentine's Day can also be the perfect opportunity to give back.
Donate in place of a Valentine's gift
If you have a tradition of exchanging Valentine’s Day gifts or treats with your loved ones, consider exchanging donations to your favorite charities instead.
Donate with your loved ones
Gather friends and family who believe in the same causes and organizations that you do, and create your own giving circle. Then pool your funds so you can donate together for a bigger impact.
Memorial gifts and personalized gift funds
You can make a Valentine's Day donation in memory of a loved one who has passed away or in commemoration of a particular event or individual. You can also join an existing gift fund or create a new one in someone’s memory.
Other ways to celebrate Valentine's Day with St. Jude

Host a Valentine’s Day fundraising event
Get creative! A Valentine's Day party can double as a fundraising event with your family, friends or coworkers. Host a bake sale featuring heart-shaped goodies, reward gift baskets to high donors or sell greeting cards. Promote your event on social media, and encourage people to post about your fundraiser with hashtags to help spread the word.

A small act of kindness can brighten someone's day. Show some love by sending a virtual card to a St. Jude kid this year. Choose from our prewritten messages or write one of your own, and make a child’s — and their family’s — Valentine’s Day feel special during a difficult time.
Why donate to St. Jude this Valentine’s Day?
When St. Jude opened in 1962, childhood cancer was considered incurable. Since then, St. Jude has helped push the overall survival rate from 20% to more than 80%, and we won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
Every child deserves a chance to live their best life and celebrate every moment. When you support St. Jude, you can make a difference for kids with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. Together, we can save more lives.
When you donate to St. Jude on February 14th, your act of kindness will make a lasting impact.
