When you make a donation to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, you can feel good knowing the bulk of your money is going to actual treatment and research. In 2022, 82 cents of every dollar donated will go where it does the most good.

There are so many reasons to donate — find eight of them below — and that's just one. During Taste of Country and Townsquare Media's annual St. Jude fundraiser, we focus on patient and artist stories, because the emotions of a mother watching her son receive a cancer diagnosis make it real, the voices of children explaining why St. Jude is a place of hope give the cause heart and the words of country music's top performers build a community.

You may need to know your money is not only going to a good cause, but doing good within the organization. Below, find some stats about the tremendous progress doctors at St. Jude have made against pediatric cancer and other life-threatening diseases. It takes $1.8 million each day to operate the facility, and more than 75 percent of that comes from public contributions. Still, families never receive a bill for any of it.

Please consider becoming a St. Jude Partner In Hope today. Your $19 a month donation will go a long, long way.
