Every day, miracles happen at St. Jude, and that hasn't stopped, even as we take the utmost care to protect our patients during the coronavirus pandemic.

Treatment for childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases continues, and it's because of you, our supporters, that we're able to offer world-class care without ever sending a bill to our patients and their families. And that will not change, even in these challenging times.

What is a stimulus check?

In April 2020, as part of the Coronavirus, Aide, Relief and Economic Security act (CARES), the U.S. government sent checks of $2,400 to couples and $1,200 to individuals to try to offset the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Additional payments of $500 per child for families were also provided.

You can use your stimulus check for anything you need or want. You can use it on food, mortgage/rent payments, car payments or to offest any loss of income.

Who qualifies for a stimulus check?

Individuals who earned up to $75,000 in adjusted gross income or $150,000 for married couples filing jointly on 2019 taxes qualify. If you have not filed, your 2018 tax return will be used.

Thank you for recognizing the importance of our mission and for continuing to help.
