What is St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital?
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Its purpose is clear: Finding cures. Saving children.®
It is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since the hospital opened in 1962. St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
St. Jude shares the breakthroughs it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
Because of generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food, so they can focus on helping their child live.
What is Shift4Shop Doing to Support St. Jude?
The Shift4Shop collaboration with St. Jude is part of the Inspiration4 fundraising initiative that was the brainchild of Jared Isaacman, founder and CEO of Shift4 and commander of Inspiration4, the first all-civilian mission to orbit Earth.
The initiative has raised more than $240 million in support of the multi-year, multi-billion dollar expansion at St. Jude aimed to accelerate research advancements and save more children worldwide. But the job doesn’t stop there.
To continue supporting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and their inspiring mission to help end childhood cancer, Shift4Shop is making it easier to collect donations from online shoppers with the use of a simple donation app.
How Does the St. Jude Donation App Work?
With the St. Jude Donation App, Shift4Shop business owners can invite their customers to make a donation to St. Jude. Customers can donate an amount of their choice after checking out and St. Jude will receive 100% of the donation.
