ALSAC® is the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. ALSAC exists solely to raise and provide the funds necessary to operate and maintain St. Jude.

Unlike any other hospital, the majority of funding for St. Jude comes from individual contributions. Because of these donations, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food. ALSAC’s full-time staff coordinates the fundraising activities of the more than 1 million volunteers and 9 million active donors who support the hospital each year. ALSAC and its volunteers complete approximately 31,000 fundraising activities annually.
