Our Relationship With McDonald's

RMHC® Mission Partner Since 1974

From the moment the doors opened at the first Ronald McDonald House® in Philadelphia, PA, the McDonald’s System, including owner/operators, suppliers, employees and customers, have called our mission their own.  For 40 years, the entire system has opened their hearts to us, providing invaluable support and fueling our growth from one House helping a few families into a multi-national network of family-centered programs serving more than seven million children and families annually.

Today, we are stronger than ever due in large part to the continued outpouring of resources from our founding and forever mission partner, McDonald’s. Their unwavering support, extending from monetary contributions to volunteerism; from board participation to media donations, has helped us impact countless lives by giving children support, stability and the best medicine of all – their families.

Thank you, McDonald's, for 40 years of helping children heal with their families by their side. Your support helped families like Crystal Bell and her daughters Ky’Briegh and Kai’Liegh. "The House helped my twins recover because I was able to be there with them to give them strength when they were fighting for their lives."

Although the McDonald's system is our largest corporate partner, RMHC® is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation and no one company can solely fund the growth of RMHC programs and services necessary to serve more families. We also rely on the support of the entire community and greatly value any donations you can afford to RMHC®, whether it’s through cash and/or in-kind contributions, your time or fundraising efforts.
