A Snapshot of St. Jude History

00148527-093_wm.jpgIn honor of Tri Delta's St. Jude month, we wanted to share a few St. Jude facts and Tri Delta's history with our philanthropic partner since 1999.

  • The daily operating cost for St. Jude is approximately $1.8 million, which is primarily covered by public contributions.

  • In 2010, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital was ranked the most trusted charity in the nation in a public survey conducted by Harris Interactive, a highly respected international polling and research firm.

  • St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is the nation's top children's cancer hospital, according to the 2010-11 Best Children's Hospitals rankings published by U.S. News & World Report.

  • St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance. No child is ever denied treatment because of the family's inability to pay.

Check out the additional facts and figures from St. Jude, and if you are ever in the Memphis area or plan to make a trip to St. Jude, be sure to schedule a tour at the hospital. It will leave a lasting imprint on your heart forever, and you will have the opportunity to see first-hand how Tri Delta is leaving a legacy at St. Jude.
