Extending the reach and impact of donation dollars to improve the health and well-being of children
Over the past 25 years, Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) has awarded more than $100 million in funding through its Global Grants Program to nonprofits to extend its reach and impact on children’s health and well-being worldwide. As RMHC and our network of local Chapters keep families close to each other and the care they need through our core programs, we also work with a select group of nonprofit organizations around the world that are making an immediate, positive impact on children.
Beginning in 2017 and throughout 2020, the RMHC Global Grants Program will focus on oral health needs of children ages 0 to 6 in the U.S., and on reducing maternal and child mortality in the first six months of life in Africa, South Asia and Latin America.
U.S. Pediatric Oral Health Initiative:
At RMHC Global we are very pleased to be continuing our relationship with Oral Health America (OHA) with a three-year grant focused on the pediatric oral health needs of the youngest and most vulnerable population of children aged 0 to 6. By partnering with OHA, RMHC Global aims to:
- Increase access to and utilization of care by providing communities with resources for oral disease prevention;
- Provide education and best-practice sharing through direct and indirect channels of communication, including online and social media, service providers in community-based settings, oral health and population-based membership organizations, and government agencies; and
- Support policies that prioritize oral health as a key asset in achieving overall health.
Maternal and Child Health Initiative:
We have had history of working with a number of impressive organizations that address the area of maternal and child health. After a careful needs assessment and review of our grants program, in 2017 we will be accepting proposals from a select group of previous grantees. These proposals will be submitted by invitation only. For organizations interested in learning more about the RMHC Global Grants Program, the 2017-2020 grant cycle is closed.
The 2017-2020 grant cycle is closed. Proposals will be accepted by invitation only.
Please also note that we reserve the right to adjust program guidelines, including submission deadlines and processes, at any time.
