America's Largest Healthcare Charity
Every year, millions of generous supporters and volunteers embrace our mission to find cures for children fighting cancer and other life-threatening diseases. They do so through generous donations, small and large, more than 31,000 events each year, including fitness events such as marathons and cycling, as well as with workplace giving, dinner galas and golf tournaments. That support means the dedicated scientists and doctors at St. Jude have the resources they need to conduct pioneering research to help save children’s lives. It also means a great deal of trust has been shown St. Jude by our supporters and peer organizations.
That recognition translates into global awareness and ultimately helps ensure that no family will ever receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
This commitment makes such a critical difference in the lives of the children and families of St. Jude. It means that we can dare to dream as big as St. Jude founder Danny Thomas, who believed we would reach a day when no child dies in the dawn of life.
