Gift Options

( / 8 )

Charitable lead trusts

Establish a charitable lead trust to benefit St. Jude and a predetermined amount of the trust’s assets will be given to St. Jude annually for a set period of time. Afterward, the remainder of the funds can be transferred to the trust’s non-charitable beneficiaries — usually family members. Setting up a charitable lead trust may reduce or even eliminate gift and estate taxes on trust assets passing to family.

Charitable remainder trusts

Charitable remainder trusts allow you to irrevocably transfer assets, and you and/or your beneficiaries receive payments from the trust for life, or another time period of your choice. The remainder of the trust then goes to St. Jude. Learn more

Gifts of stock

Please fill out this transfer form at the time you make the transfer so we can properly acknowledge your gift for tax purposes.

Life insurance

If you have a life insurance policy that you no longer need because of a change in your life circumstances, you can give a paid-up policy to St. Jude, or even a policy on which you are still paying premiums. By irrevocably designating St. Jude as owner and beneficiary of the policy, you may be entitled to a generous charitable income tax deduction. You can call or write to your insurance company to request a form to make this change of beneficiary.

Please make sure you list the new owner and beneficiary as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Tax ID #62-0646012, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
