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.

When “it happens to you,” RMHC is there to help
Like many young students in Orland Park, Ill., Laurie Cepkauskas collected pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House in town. And like her peers, she didn’t do it because she knew exactly what the charity was doing, but because that’s just what students did. “I really didn’t know anything about it exc...

RMHC has been there for us through the years
My family’s first experience with the Ronald McDonald House of Durham and Wake was when my son Paris was three years old. After months of trying to figure out why Paris was so ill, we learned that he had restrictive cardio myopathy. The doctors sent us to see heart specialists at Duke Children's...

The Johnson FamilyX
It's hard to put into words what RMHC has meant to us
When Noelle Johnson is asked about her son Jordan’s health, she can rattle off the dates of his three heart surgeries, his seven-month stay in the hospital as a newborn, when he got a tracheotomy tube inserted to help him breathe and the nights she’s spent by her 12-year-old’s side every time he’s c...

RMHC helped us cope while our child was hospitalized
I knew about RMHC before our daughter Autumn was hospitalized, but I had no idea what it would mean to us to be able to stay at the House. I had no idea just how much thought and effort staff and volunteers put into making life easier for families with sick children. Our eleven-month-old daughter Au... Read more about The Wehr Family
