Ronald McDonald House Charities has been McDonald’s “charity of choice” for over 40 years.
McDonald’s Corporation, Customers and Vendors
While McDonald’s the corporation is a Foundation Partner, Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is neither owned nor fully funded by McDonald’s. RMHC-CNI is licensed, managed and funded locally, and we depend on local support from the community to raise the majority of our budget.
McDonald’s Volunteer Support
Several McDonald’s owner/operators and McDonald’s employees volunteer as members of our Board of Directors and serve as volunteers.
McDonald’s Fundraising and Financial Support
Our local McDonald’s owner/operators and managers are big supporters of our fundraising events and have several donation promotions each year in their stores, including the McDonald’s Happy Meal Program where a portion of the proceeds from the sale of every Happy Meal benefits our families as well as the Give a Little Love Promotion in February and Give a Hand Promotion in May.
McDonald’s customers show their support by donating change in the restaurant donation canisters, and these donations help local families. Additionally, McDonald’s supports the RMHC Global organization which provides training, support and matching funds for our local grantmaking efforts. McDonald’s suppliers, such as Coca-Cola and Martin Brower are also donors to RMHC-CNI.
