ProspectsPLUS! Partners with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® to Raise $30,000
Raising Research Funds With Our “Year of the Kids” Campaign
As part of our renewed commitment to service, we’ve selected St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® as our official charity partner since 2016. Since 1962, St. Jude has led pioneering research and treatments for kids with cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude has helped increase the overall survival rate for childhood cancer from 20 percent to 80 percent and with the generous support of donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
We kick started our first year as a St. Jude partner with a “Year of the Kids Campaign” and will match every donation to St. Jude from our customers dollar for dollar through May 31, 2018. ProspectsPLUS! will donate a minimum of $30,000 to St. Jude to support its lifesaving mission: Finding cures. Saving children.®” by offering four different donation denominations ($5, $10, $25, $50 dollars). Customers can choose a denomination in the order management system and ProspectsPLUS! will match every donation dollar for dollar.
Additional opportunities for employee participation and product-specific donations will be announced in coming months.
“Cancer is something that has affected the lives of us all and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s impeccable reputation for research, development and patient care in the fight against childhood cancer made it the perfect choice for our organization,” said Jim Morton, President of ProspectsPLUS! “Our team has long supported great causes. We brought a team of ten to the Habitat for Humanity project in the lower ninth ward after Hurricane Katrina, sponsored a Coats for Kids drive for inner city schools, and are a frequent contributor to arts programs in our local schools. This partnership with St. Jude allows us to bring our level of service to another level, and we couldn’t be more passionate about the mission.”
Our goal is to introduce the new partnership and platform opportunities for giving to more than one million real estate professionals across North America, as well as to our customer base of entrepreneurs and business colleagues around the globe to reach or exceed their $30,000 goal.

About 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. 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 percent to 80 percent since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago.
St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent, and we won’t stop until no child dies from cancer. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
