Host Your Own Fundraising Event for Ronald McDonald House

Burger Day Supporting Ronald McDonald House

Lezza Italian Ice Community Event for Ronald McDonald House

Each year, energetic individuals, businesses, community groups, and students generate the resources and funds needed to support the mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana. Below are a couple of ideas to help get you started in putting together your own fundraising event:

Host a party

Host a service/product promotion

Host a sporting event

In lieu of gifts, ask all of your guests to bring cash donations to sponsor a family night at Ronald McDonald House (Every $85 donation sponsors one night for a family) or wish list items to support our five local Ronald McDonald Houses.

Designate a day at your business or select one of your products where a portion of the proceeds will benefit families at Ronald McDonald House.

Coordinate an activity (basketball, soccer, bags tournament, etc.) in which the net proceeds and/or entry fees will benefit the charity.
