Donate in honor of a loved one: FAQs

  1. Donors who make a donation to St. Jude in honor of someone else may claim a charitable tax deduction for the donation to St. Jude to the full extent allowed by law. Be sure to consult with a tax professional for your situation. 

  2. The gift recipient will not be able to see the amount you donated in their honor. When you make a donation to St. Jude in honor of someone, the amount of the gift only appears on the acknowledgment letter or tax receipt that is sent directly to you. Your gift recipient receives a separate letter or confirmation, if you choose to have one sent, that does not include the amount of the donation.

  3. Please contact Donor Services at (800) 822-6344.
