Your legacy. Danny's Dream.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® opened its doors in February 1962 based on Danny's dream that "no child should die in the dawn of life." To help continue that dream, we're asking for supporters to confirm that they have left St. Jude in their will or estate plan.

By embracing his legacy as your own, you can help ensure that the pioneering research and unsurpassed patient care provided today continues for future generations.

Confirm your gift and enjoy the benefits

By confirming your legacy gift, you give lasting hope for patients and families.

Once you confirm that you are leaving St. Jude in your will or estate plan, you:
  • Become a valued member of the Danny Thomas – St. Jude Society.

God willing, this will be an institution that will go on for years, and it can only go on for years doing what it is doing now if we support it.
