St. Jude patient William

Getting started

  1. It’s easy to give an annuity gift and get tax benefits

    You transfer cash or securities to St. Jude. St. Jude pays you, or up to two annuitants you name, a lifetime annuity. The principal passes to St. Jude when the contract ends.

  2. You can support St. Jude now, while helping achieve your own financial goals and reducing your tax burden.

    • You receive an immediate income tax deduction for a portion of your gift.
    • Your lifetime annuity is backed by a reserve and the full assets of St. Jude.
    • Your annuity payments are treated as part ordinary income, part annual gains income (15%), and part tax-free income.
    • You have the satisfaction of making a significant gift that benefits you now and St. Jude later.
  3. Use our interactive resources to explore how charitable gift annuities can help St. Jude.

  4. Creating a charitable gift annuity with St. Jude makes you eligible to become a member of the Danny Thomas – St. Jude Society. This honor includes:

    • a personalized plaque on our Legacy Wall located in the hospital
    • inclusion in our annual publication of the Danny Thomas — St. Jude Society member listing
    • an invitation to our annual spring event at the hospital
    • invitations to donor appreciation luncheons in your area
