Best Buy has raised $100 million for the kids of St. Jude and continues to make a difference in the fight to end childhood cancer.
Best Buy has been the top annual fundraising partner for St. Jude since 2016. Best Buy’s dedication to the mission of St. Jude can be seen throughout its company culture. Their primary support comes from their participation in the St. Jude Thanks and Giving® campaign. During the holiday season, Best Buy gives customers the opportunity to make donations to St. Jude via, online, in-store and mobile ordering. In 2019, Best Buy hit a company record raising more than $22.5 million during their St. Jude Thanks and Giving® campaign. This is the most that any St. Jude corporate partner has raised for St. Jude in a single year.
Each year, Best Buy store general managers and associates visit St. Jude to host a Geek Squad Academy technology-themed event for our St. Jude patients and their families. This unique event is always a highlight for our patient families.
Going one step further in their support of St. Jude, Best Buy employees also volunteer their time at local St. Jude fundraising events across the country helping to assist with any technology needs of the event. Their employees also support St. Jude through the St. Jude Walk/Run as well as their employee giving and matching gifts campaigns.
It’s the passion and dedication of partners like Best Buy that allows St. Jude to lead the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
In their six years of supporting St. Jude, our partners at Best Buy have helped ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for anything, because all they should worry about is helping their child live.
