The Power of Partnership

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® was founded based on a lifesaving mission: Finding cures. Saving children.® But, we can't do it alone. Because of the dedicated support of partners like Delta Air Lines, St. Jude is able to lead the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Finding a cure is not an easy task. But the chances of a world where no child dies from cancer are higher because of you.


Delta: Committed to St. Jude

One of the many impactful ways you support St. Jude is through the Delta SkyWish program, which encourages frequent travelers to donate their airline miles to one of 15 national charities, including St. Jude. In 2019, Delta SkyWish members donated over $466,000 worth of Delta Air Lines airlines travel to patient and family travel.

Thanks to your generous customers, St. Jude received 150 round-trip tickets in  2019. They were used for patients and their families to travel to St. Jude for treatment. More than providing travel, this act of kindness lifts a financial burden for many patient families.

In April 2019, Michelle Gallagher, Director of Community Affairs, and Keith Gallagher visited the St. Jude campus and the Tri Delta Place residential facility for the first time to learn about the research and discoveries that impact lives around the world. They also attended the VIP reception at the Atlanta Legends for Charity® Dinner, home to Delta headquarters.

To further support the St. Jude mission, Delta donated $175,000 to sponsor St. Jude events around the country.

Delta Air Campus Visit

Fantasy Flight

The Memphis International Airport and Delta Air Lines join forces to offer a magical evening each December for the kids of St. Jude.  The Fantasy Flight taxi’s around the Memphis airfield while on board Santa interacts with patients and their families spreading holiday cheer. This is an annual event in Memphis that unites many airport employees and volunteers for a great cause.


Thankful for All You Do for St. Jude Kids

Because of you, St. Jude is able to save kids regardless of their financial situation. The values you continuously instill throughout your corporation are the values that create an immense and invaluable partnership between Delta Air Lines and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.  Because you are committed to going above and beyond, we are able to continue our lifesaving mission. Thank you, Delta Air Lines, for your gifts of giving and for being a beacon of hope for St. Jude children and their families.
