ALSAC employees celebrating Halloween with patients at the hospital.

In 1957, five years before opening the doors of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Danny Thomas and friends created ALSAC to raise the funds and awareness necessary to operate and maintain St. Jude.

We continue our work today so that no family receives a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. 

We strive to create a fun, innovative work environment. Employees enjoy dressing casually and taking advantage of our on-site fitness center and free fitness classes. We also have a fantastic cafeteria (Kay Kafe) and two Starbucks locations.

Our Culture


Success comes from having a great staff that's valued, treats each other with respect and whose input and contributions are recognized.



Success doesn't just happen. We plan, measure and analyze so we can achieve our goal:
Saving children's lives.



We create ways for you to share your ideas and turn those into initiatives to help the kids of St. Jude.



Our environment gives you the space to collaborate with other team members to turn good ideas into great ones.



We work across divisions to create better campaigns, events and processes and to be good stewards of our donors' gifts.



Knowing we're helping kids fight cancer motivates us all to perform at our best and strive for excellence each and every day.

    Knowing there's a child depending on me to see tomorrow. It gives me strength to get out of bed and report to work each and every day.

    What gets you out of bed in the morning?
    Literally, my cats. But what keeps me from going to back to bed is knowing that I get to help sick kids with the power of video games.

    What was your “St. Jude Moment”?
    My first boss took me to lunch at Kay Kafe. Everyone you see is either in need of help or dedicated to helping those in need. It's what I imagine Starfleet from Star Trek to be like — an organization wholly dedicated to the betterment of mankind. 

    What are six words that describe ALSAC?
    We are where cures come from.
