Why foundations are important partners for St. Jude

Unlike other hospitals, the majority of funding for St. Jude comes from generous donors, so gifts from public and private family, community and corporate foundations provide vital support for our lifesaving work.


According to Charity Navigator — an organization that evaluates nonprofits based on transparency, financial health and accountability —  ALSAC/St. Jude Children's Research Hospital has a four-out-of-four star rating for our Overall Score and Rating.


82 cents of every dollar received from donations, research grants, insurance recoveries and investment returns goes to support the current and future needs of St. Jude.


When St. Jude opened in 1962, childhood cancer was considered incurable. Since then, St. Jude has helped push the overall survival rate from 20% to more than 80%. St. Jude won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
