Ronald McDonald House Charities has been McDonald’s “charity of choice” since 1974.
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kentuckiana is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, part of a global organization serving children in 58 countries and regions. To learn more about the global impact of RMHC, please visit www.rmhc.org. McDonald’s is our largest corporate donor. Portions of our annual operating costs for Ronald McDonald House and Ronald McDonald Family Rooms are graciously funded by McDonald’s owners/operators from the Kentuckiana region. The remainder of our annual operating income is generated by the generosity of individual and additional corporate donors.
McDonald’s involvement extends beyond monetary support:
- McDonald’s partners with RMHCK for promotional and fundraising events.
- McDonald’s employees are dedicated volunteers.
- Owners/Operators serve on RMHCK’s Board of Directors.
- RMHC donation boxes hosted in our local restaurants are a large source of ongoing fundraising.
RMHC Donation Boxes
Little by little, we can do a lot.
When you visit your local McDonald’s Restaurant, you will see a RMHC Donation Box at the cash registers and in the drive thru similar to this one.
You can give a dime here; a quarter there. It might not seem like much, but when thousands of people drop their change at our local McDonald’s, over $140,000 is donated to RMHCK on an annual basis.
Every time you drop your change into a RMHC Donation Box at McDonald’s, you are helping RMHCK provide a “home away from home” for families of seriously ill children. Please continue to make a change by dropping your change. Thank you for supporting the House and tell your friends!
McDonald’s Restaurants of Kentuckiana Owner/Operators were the first to pledge a contribution towards our current expansion project. Their $1 million pledge kick-started our capital campaign and Owner/Operators have been on the front lines helping to raise the additional funding needed to expand our House from 36 to 56 guestrooms. See our expansion page for more information.
