Domino's is upsizing its charity work.

The Ann Arbor, Mich.-based pizza chain on Monday said that is raising $100 million over 10 years to help fund a new housing facility at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The commitment is the largest in the history of St. Jude, which has been a national charity partner of Domino’s since 2004, and easily outdistances the $68 million the company has raised for the charity since it started its annual Thanks and Giving campaign in 2004. The company also raises funds for St. Jude by letting customers round up their order totals.

St. Jude will name its newest housing facility The Domino’s Village, currently being constructed on the St. Jude campus in Memphis and expected to open in 2023. The Domino’s’ Village will feature apartments where families can stay while children are getting treatment.

St. Jude treats children with cancer, blood disorders and related life-threatening diseases. It treats about 8,500 patients a year from the U.S. and around the world. In addition to housing and food, St. Jude offers an on-site school and other services for patients and families, who are never billed for treatment, travel, housing or food.
