Year-end giving options for 2023
Give a gift that could last a lifetime.
Year-end gifts from generous St. Jude supporters directly impact the lives and futures of children with pediatric cancer and other catastrophic diseases. This holiday season, your gift could last a lifetime.
You can recommend a grant from your donor-advised fund by calling your fund manager or by signing in to your granting institution and selecting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Benefits of year-end donations
Year-end donations are simply the funds, assets and/or items donated by supporters to qualified nonprofit organizations at the end of the year.
From financial savings to emotional connection, there are multiple benefits to year-end donations:
Spread holiday cheer
One of the most impactful things you can do during this time is give back. Spread the holiday spirit by helping provide lifesaving treatment for the children of St. Jude.
Making a year-end donation to St. Jude means you join a global mission. At St. Jude, we believe that all children should be given the quality care that they deserve. By making a year-end donation, you are giving St. Jude the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving kids regardless of their financial situation.
Tax deductions and lowered tax liability
Individuals who itemize deductions on their taxes may be eligible to claim a charitable contribution deduction against their taxable income after making a year-end gift to a qualifying charitable organization like St. Jude.
By lowering an individual’s taxable income, these types of donations can lower the amount of tax owed by the donor, reducing their tax liability.

$500 could help provide four walkers for St. Jude patients.
A walker can help patients move around and be more independent in their daily lives. Using a walker can take practice, and each type of walker can be a little different.
$2,500 could help provide an ultrasound study to monitor and treat a patient's disease.
An ultrasound study is among the diagnostic imaging tests that doctors use to diagnose and monitor disease and treatment.
$5,000 could help provide three days of chemotherapy administered intravenously to leukemia or solid tumor patients.
Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. And we won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
