Back to leadership & Board Members


Jerry Mathis is Senior Adviser – Postal Relations at ALSAC/St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

ALSAC/St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a founding member of Alliance of Nonprofit Mailers. St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.

We’ve spent more than half a century finding cures and saving children, and our groundbreaking research has helped push the survival rate for childhood cancer from less than 20 percent in 1962 to more than 80 percent today. View our timeline to explore our key milestones from the day we opened to present day.

On behalf of the organization, Jerry Mathis holds an Alliance of Nonprofit Mailers’ board member position. In December 2015, Jerry Mathis was elected by the board to serve as secretary and member of the executive committee, replacing Laura Grafeld  of the American Management Association who remains on the board.

Jerry holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communication from the University of Memphis. In 2011, he received the Richard C. Shadyac Award from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

In his free time, Jerry enjoys traveling to sporting events.

“The Alliance is an important part of ensuring that nonprofits have a fair voice when it comes to postal rates and regulations. It allows you to stay current on any and all postal developments that may affect the way that you do business. Alliance membership more than pays for itself, and it helps nonprofits achieve our critical missions. What could be better?”
