What is the St. Jude Give to Live Society?

The St. Jude Give to Live Society is a loyal group of donors who consistently give charitable gifts throughout the year to reach significant, impactful levels. The Society is made of five benefit levels of giving that help fuel the innovative work of St. Jude – leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. 


Your impact in 2020

Founding St. Jude Give to Live Society members made a lasting impact on the lives of St. Jude kids and their families in 2020.

As a committed donor, your giving helps ensure that St. Jude is here for families in need.

By joining the St. Jude Give to Live Society, you will receive exclusive incentives at each benefit level as a token of appreciation, as the true reward comes from knowing that donors like you are furthering the St. Jude mission and helping save children everywhere.

  1. Your giving could cover the cost of five days of oxygen for a St. Jude patient.

    During treatment, St. Jude patients may need oxygen to help their bodies function properly and aid in healing.

    With a cumulative gift of $2,500 or more, your gift can help ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food. 

  2. Your giving could support the cost of the daily room rate of the ICU.

    The Intensive Care Unit at St. Jude has been recognized twice with the Beacon Award for Critical Care Excellence given by the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses. In 2009, the St. Jude ICU became Tennessee’s first ICU to win the honor.

    With a cumulative gift of $5,000 or more, your philanthropy will be in service to help saves the lives of St. Jude kids.

  3. Your giving could help provide one CT scan for a St. Jude patient

    Platelet counts are among the tests doctors use to monitor patient health during treatment. A CT scan provides parents with much needed answers about their child's health.

    With a cumulative gift of $10,000 or more, you can help make the investments that save St. Jude kids.

  4. Your giving could help run the St. Jude Blood Donor Center for one week.

    The Blood Donor Center, located on the first floor of the Patient Care Center, is responsible for collecting and providing the hospital with platelets and other blood products necessary for our patient’s care.

    With a cumulative gift of $15,000 or more, you can help sustain the St. Jude mission through generous giving.

  5. Your giving could cover a fourth of the cost of providing radiotherapy treatment for a brain tumor patient.

    St. Jude was the first to study a computer-based, three-dimensional radiation therapy technique for pediatric brain tumor treatment to minimize damage to healthy tissue and preserve cognitive development in children.

    With a cumulative gift of $25,000 or more, you can help save future generations of St. Jude kids.
