Our Relationship with McDonald’s
Ronald McDonald House Charities has been McDonald’s charity of choice since 1974. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, so we need the support of our entire community. Whether you are an individual or a large company, your support is essential. It takes the donations from many, to support our programs and projected growth. It takes cash donations, volunteer time, third party fundraisers, etc… to help us help families that need our services. Fortunately, we can count McDonald’s as our largest corporate donor.
McDonald’s involvement extends well beyond just writing us a check. They allow customers to Round-Up their order to the nearest dollar to donate change to the House. A portion of Happy Meal sales and proceeds from the annual Shamrock Shake and soft drink sleeves also go towards RMHC. McDonald’s owner/operators and employees often volunteer their time at the House or one of our many events. We obtain funds that stay local from the RMHC Donation Boxes that are found in your local McDonald’s restaurant. The list goes on and on. They are a very generous donor that we’re grateful to have on our team.
