Our Relationship with McDonald’s
RMHC Founding Mission Partner since 1974
From the moment we opened our first Ronald McDonald House in Philadelphia, PA, the entire McDonald’s system (owner/operators, suppliers, employees and customers) has helped us support families with sick children providing stability and vital resources.
McDonald’s support extends from monetary contributions and volunteerism, to cause related marketing promotions and the space to place RMHC Donation Boxes that raise money for Chapters around the world. McDonald’s has helped RMHC positively impact millions of children and their families, and continues to provide valuable resources and support to help us expand our core programs and services.
Although the McDonald’s system is our largest corporate partner, RMHC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. RMHC relies on the support of the entire community and greatly values donations from the community and other corporate partners.
DID YOU KNOW?
- RMHC has local Chapters in more than 63 countries and regions around the world
- More than $200 million has been collected through RMHC Donation Boxes
- At least one RMHC core program provides care for children and their families being served at 90% of the top children’s hospitals worldwide
- Yearly, RMHC serves more than 7 million children and families
WHAT WE DO
Keeping families close to each other and the care they need.
