St. Jude Donation Details

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is headquartered in Downtown Memphis and treats approximately 7,800 children each year at no cost to the family. Now, when your organization chooses Memphis for your meeting or conference in 2017, 2018 or 2019, you’ll have a great time and pay it forward with a portion of each room night booked going to the heroes at St. Jude.

Here’s how it works.

Depending on how many room nights you book, Memphis Tourism will donate a set dollar amount per room night – all in honor of your visit.

Terms To Consider:

  1. Client must book a NEW 2017, 2018, or 2019* meeting or convention in Memphis.
  2. Client or hotel must obtain approval from Memphis Tourism prior to calculating the donation amount. Send the Incentive Request form AND the original RFP to your Memphis Tourism Sales Manager for review and approval.
  3. Hotel must provide documentation to verify that the Client is considering other cities. (Must show competition; i.e., letter or e-mail from client indicating specifics about group.)
  4. Client must bring “new” business to Memphis. “New” business is considered any client that hasn’t hosted a meeting or convention in Memphis in at least three years.
  5. Client must provide a 2-year history that indicates other destinations where the group has met in that time.
  6. This donation will be calculated as follows:
    1. 249-400 room nights equal a $3.00 donation per room night
    2. 500-749 room nights equal a $5.00 donation per room night
    3. 750+ room nights equal a $6.00 donation per room night
      (Hotel must provide pick-up report following the meeting)

*Applies to any group that meets (peak nights) in February, July, August, September, November or December of 2017/2018.
