Why You Should Leave a Charitable Bequest to St. Jude’s Research Hospital

Giving back to St. Jude’s Research Hospital is one of the best ways that you can make an impact on the lives of countless children and their families. St. Jude’s seeks to advance research, treatment and cures for cancer and other life-threatening pediatric diseases. It was 1962 when founder Danny Thomas made it his mission to ensure that no child, ever, is turned away from St. Jude’s, for any reason. He believed that even a family’s inability to pay shouldn’t prevent a child from receiving the treatment he or she needs. 

Because of this philosophy, there simply isn’t another children’s hospital in existence that relies so heavily on donor contributions. It’s only through the generosity and kindness of donors that St. Jude’s mission can continue to thrive. 

There are multiple reasons why donating to St. Jude’s can be a worthy decision:

  • Children from all 50 states (and around the world) have sought treatment at St. Jude’s

  • St. Jude’s treatments have moved the needle from a 20% to an 80% survival rate over the last 5+ decades

  • Voted Top Children’s Cancer Care Hospitals in the U.S. by Parents Magazine

  • Smithsonian Magazine American Ingenuity Award (2019)

  • Best Children’s Hospitals, by U.S. News & World Report (2020-2021)

  • American Association for Cancer Research AACR Team Science Award (2019)

  • And so much more…

St. Jude’s can be included in your Estate Plan with Planned Gifts. Your contribution will help protect this truly special organization and all they do for children and families in our country and across the globe.
