When you make a donation in memory of a loved one to St. Jude, you will receive an acknowledgment for your donation and you can choose to have a card sent to the family of the loved one being memorialized.
A memorial donation to St. Jude is a gift that will help fund cancer research and treatments for children and their families affected by childhood cancer. Thanks to donations, including memorial donations, no family ever receives a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — so they can focus on helping their child live.
St. Jude is a U.S. tax-exempt non-profit organization where donations are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
When you make a memorial donation, you can select a recipient to be notified of your gift. St. Jude will send a personalized e-card or mail card to the recipient you list. The individual or family member listed will promptly receive the personalized tribute e-card or mail card, without revealing the amount.
