Signet’s tradition of supporting the St. Jude mission of helping children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases spans 24 years, raising nearly $97 million to date.
This year’s donation also completes Signet’s $50 million commitment to fund the construction of the KAY Research & Care Center
Signet Jewelers, the world’s largest retailer of diamond jewelry, announced that it raised nearly $8.2 million to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during 2022. This latest contribution is Signet’s largest donation to St. Jude in its history and increases the amount that Signet has raised for St. Jude over the last 24 years to nearly $97 million.
Signet raised the money year-round in four ways – by donating proceeds from the annual sale of plush puppies and bears at its stores, inspiring customers to donate money at the register and online, supporting the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend and inspiring team members to make personal donations.
“At Signet, we’re passionate about supporting St. Jude in its critical mission to help children fight cancer and other life-threatening diseases – and so are our employees and customers. We see our purpose of Inspiring Love realized, knowing that we’re making a real difference for St. Jude and providing vital support for patients and families battling bravely every day,” said Virginia C. Drosos, CEO of Signet Jewelers.
“We are also proud that our contribution this year completes our funding of the hospital’s $50 million KAY Research & Care Center – three years earlier than anticipated. The Center plays a crucial role in helping St. Jude advance cures and means of prevention for paediatric diseases through research and treatment” CEO added.
The KAY Research and Care Center opened in 2015 on the St. Jude campus in Memphis and is dedicated to scientific research, education, global collaboration, patient care and treatment.
“For more than two decades, the incredible generosity of our friends at Signet Jewelers has had an impact on the patients of St. Jude at every step of their journey from the registration desk in the Patient Care Center to the KAY Research & Care Center to meals and community served up in KAY Kafe,” said Richard C. Shadyac Jr., President and CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
“We are awed by the compassion of Signet employees and customers, whose support plays a critical role in ensuring St. Jude continues to provide patient families with world-class care while continuing to find cures for childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases” Richard adds.
