A Gift that Never Stops Giving

Each holiday season, St. Jude is blessed with philanthropic gifts of love and gratitude from you, our incredible donor community. While many people struggle to find the perfect present for their family and friends, you continue to impress us with touching and creative ways in which you turn a gift to St. Jude into an expression of love for someone you care about. Here are some meaningful ways of giving that have made an everlasting impact.

In Honor of

Showing appreciation to a St. Jude caregiver or team

“I am sending this donation in the names of all caregivers who work on the 3rd Floor North Building. Many thanks for giving me your love, commitment and respect during my stay. It really helped me feel better just knowing you cared. On a scale of 1-10, you are all 11.”

“This donation expresses our appreciation for the courtesy and compassion shown by one of your staff, Kim, in the surgery center. My husband has been a patient of St. Jude for over 60 years. We don’t often feel compelled to express our opinions, but the outstanding service we received made it compulsory to do so. Kim treated us although he was her only patient. I felt she genuinely cared and that she treats all her patients with the same kindness.”

In Memory of

Honoring the life of a loved one

“I’d like to make this gift in memory of my husband, Richard, who recently passed away after a long battle with cancer. Richard had a giving soul who was always willing to help anyone in need. I can think of no better way to honor his legacy than to support St. Jude, a place that serves the physical and emotional needs of so many in our community.”

In Celebration of

Highlighting a happy occasion

“My mother is grateful for every year of life that she gets to celebrate thanks to what St. Jude did for her when she was in the hospital 10 years ago. This donation is in honor of my mother on her birthday.”

In Lieu of

Gifting for good

“I am pleased to make this gift in honor of newlyweds, Alex and Melissa Donovan, who asked for donations be made to St. Jude instead of wedding gifts. May this donation helps others lead long and happy lives, much like the Donovans have ahead of them.”
