Charitable lead trusts

You can establish a charitable lead trust to benefit St. Jude, and a predetermined amount of the trust’s assets will be given to St. Jude annually for a set period of time. Afterward, the remainder of the funds can be transferred to the trust’s non-charitable beneficiaries, such as family members. Setting up a charitable lead trust may reduce or even eliminate gift and estate taxes on trust assets passing to family.

You may be interested in a charitable lead trust if:

  • You have a large estate that would be subject to gift and estate tax.
  • You have assets that you want to keep in the family and that have a likelihood of significant appreciation in the future.
  • You want to make significant annual gifts while you are living to a charity that is important to you, and also pass assets to beneficiaries at a potentially lower gift or estate tax cost.

Public and private foundations provide vital support for the lifesaving work of St. Jude. Generous gifts from family foundations, community and corporate foundations and donor advised funds help ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

Recent cuts in government funding for research make your foundation's gift to St. Jude more important than ever. Your grant can help our groundbreaking research continue, and because St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs we make, one child saved at St. Jude means thousands more children saved around the world.

If you'd like to send an unrestricted gift by check, please mail it to:

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
