Title: Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. and St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital


1
Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.andSt. Jude
Childrens Research Hospital
  • Bridging Communities Through Partnership

2
St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital
  • St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital, founded
    by the late entertainer Danny Thomas, is the
    first institution established for the sole
    purpose of conducting basic and clinical research
    into catastrophic childhood diseases, mainly
    cancer.
  • The first desegregated hospital in Memphis and
    the region. It functioned as a totally
    integrated facility including treatment areas,
    dining rooms and bathroom facilities.
  • St. Jude, which is non-sectarian, treats children
    without regard to race, religion, creed or
    ability to pay. St. Jude is the ONLY pediatric
    cancer research center where families never pay
    for treatments that are not covered by insurance.
    Families without insurance are NEVER asked to
    pay.
  • The hospitals daily operating costs are
    approximately more than 1.2 million, which are
    primarily covered by public contributions.

St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital
  • The only brain tumor program in the world devoted
    entirely to children.
  • The first to receive government approval for a
    unique bone marrow transplant procedure that
    makes it possible for parents who are not exact
    matches to be donors for their children.
  • Since its inception, St. Jude has developed
    protocols that have brought survival rates for
    childhood cancers from less than 20 percent to
    more than 70 percent overall.

2007 Achievements
  • Kappa raised 100,000 for St. Jude in 2006-2007.
  • This represents the largest donation that Kappa
    has given to a charity.
  • Because of the huge success this year, the Kappa
    Alpha Psi Grand Board has committed that Kappa
    will raise 500,000 in five years. This donation
    will go towards the name of the main lobby of the
    Translational Trials Unit.

Overview of the Translational Trials Unit (TTU)
  • Some of St. Judes most unparalleled advances are
    housed in the TTU including translational
    medicine, the HIV/AIDS Program and the Sickle
    Cell Clinic.
  • St. Jude has done research in Sickle Cell disease
    since its inception. The first research grant was
    given to Dr. Lemuel Diggs for the continuation of
    his work on sickle cell anemia.
  • St. Jude is the first known hospital in the world
    to cure sickle cell disease through bone marrow
    transplantation. Today, bone marrow
    transplantation still offers the only cure for
    sickle cell disease.
  • St. Jude now has one of the largest pediatric
    Sickle Cell research and treatment programs in
    the world.
  • St. Jude is the leader in pediatric AIDS
    research. St. Jude scientists are investigating
    drugs to further prevent mother-to-infant
    transmission of the HIV/AIDS virus. Scientists
    are also studying new drugs to inhibit the virus.
  • A parainfluenza virus vaccine, AIDS vaccine, and
    a cholera vaccine are currently under
    investigation in the TTU.

So how can Kappa Alpha Psi members achieve this
goal?
7
Sunday of Hope
  • Sunday of Hope is a program that will be
    implemented in churches across the country.
  • On one Sunday in January, Kappa members will get
    up in front of their congregation to ask for a
    love offering for St. Jude.
  • We selected January because Founders Day is in
    that month.

8
Sunday of Hope Heres How It Works
  • September-November
  • Kappa members will recruit churches in your local
    community to commit to host a Sunday of Hope
    event one Sunday in the month of January. St.
    Jude will provide all collateral materials to
    help recruit churches and execute the program.
  • Each alumni chapter is asked to sign on one
    church for their chapter. The goal for each
    church signed on is to raise at least 1,000.
  • Kappa members will go online to register their
    churches. The deadline to register will be
    November 20.

9
Sunday of Hope Heres How It Works (cont.)
  • St. Jude will ship all collateral materials to
    the churches December 1.
  • On the selected Sunday, a Kappa member will
    present to their congregation. You will show a
    St. Jude patient story, educate the congregation
    about St. Jude and ask for a love offering in
    honor of St. Jude patients and their families.
  • The Kappa members and church officials will
    collect the revenue, count it and send it to St.
    Jude. Monies collected from each church will be
    tracked individually. Each donor will receive an
    acknowledgement from St. Jude
  • St. Jude will host a National check presentation
    at St. Jude for Kappa members and top church
    officials.
  • St. Jude will send out a national post event
    press release to publicize Kappas commitment to
    community.
