Your Support Since 2015

The Power of Partnership

Thanks to the dedication of partners like Microsoft, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® continues to make progress in our lifesaving mission: Finding cures. Saving children.® Your support means that St. Jude can lead the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Because of your compassion, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food—because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.


A Year of Impact

The inaugural Matching Gift Partner of the Year Award was presented to Microsoft in June 2019. This award honored your dedication to maximizing employee contributions or volunteer time to St Jude. Over the past four years, Microsoft has matched nearly $1.5 million in employee contributions to St. Jude.   

St. Jude participated in the 2019 Give Fest at Microsoft. This fantastic event provided employees with the opportunity to gain more awareness about St. Jude and the lifesaving mission.

During Microsoft’s Give Month, employees participated in various micro-volunteering programs. More than 2,000 employees participated in volunteer activities to provide craft kits, Halloween cards, and mask straps for St. Jude patients. Microsoft gave over $24,000 in matching contributions as employees dedicated their time to giving back. 

In the spirit of giving this past holiday season, Microsoft employees donated over 40 boxes filled with toys for the kids at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. The generosity from Microsoft employees who participated in their company’s annual Giving Tree Program goes far beyond in-kind donations. Through Microsoft’s matching gift program, employees had the opportunity to match the value of their in-kind gift. Nearly $13,000 in matching contributions were made by Microsoft to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude

At St. Jude, we are committed to providing family-centered care, which includes letting kids be kids and striving to make enjoyable memories for families unable to go home for the holidays. The support from wonderful donors, like Microsoft employees, helped spark joy for St. Jude families this holiday season.


Thankful for All You Do for the Kids of St. Jude

Because of your powerful partnership, St. Jude can save kids regardless of their financial situation. And while St. Jude may not be located in your community, our research and discoveries are. We freely share the discoveries we make, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.

Thank you, Microsoft, for your gifts of giving and compassion, and for being a beacon of hope for St. Jude children and families.
