Our Partnership with McDonald’s

The local McDonald’s franchisees and McDonald’s Corporation generously support Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana (RMHC-CNI) through in-restaurant fundraisers such as the RMHC donation box program, Cookies that Care, and the Make Every Happy Meal Counts. Each local Ronald McDonald House Chapter is a separate and distinct 501(c)3 non-profit organization governed by a local Board of Directors.
