Most people do not use all of their retirement assets during their lifetime, and those unused assets can be used to make a gift to St. Jude.

Because charities do not pay income taxes on the donations they receive, distributions to charities will avoid being taxed as income.

Why St. Jude?

No bill icon
 

Families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food so they can focus on helping their child live.

 
 
Twenty to eighty icon
 

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened in 1962. St. Jude won't stop until no child dies from cancer.

 
 
Children icon
 

St. Jude shares its discoveries with doctors and scientists in your community and around the world, so every child saved at St. Jude means thousands more children are also saved.
