Make a Donation to Ronald McDonald House near Lurie Children’s

Your donations help keep families together in this comfortable, safe, and clean ‘home away from home’. It takes a  community of support to maintain and stock our House, and we are very grateful to all of the corporations, organizations, and individuals who help make this possible.

Pop Tab Collection

Collect and Recycle Pop Tabs

Across the Chicagoland area, hundreds of individuals, schools and companies are working together to collect pop tabs to benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana.

Those pop tabs are then recycled by our recycling partner, United Scrap Metal, and we receive the market value of the recycled metal, plus a charitable match from United Scrap. Last year RMHC-CNI raised more than $40,000 from this program. Learn more about our pop tab recycling program to get started collecting today.

Wish List Donations

Donate In-Kind Items

Wish List Donations

In-kind goods are donations of supplies and services. Many of the items on our Wish List are essential to our ability to provide a safe, clean, and relaxing environment for the families who stay with us. Consider picking up a few items for the House next time you are shopping or organize a ‘Wish List Drive’ with your organization or office and ask others to join you! Contact Mark Shouger with any questions about Wish List donations. 

You can also purchase items from our Amazon Registry and have them shipped directly to the House. Thanks for helping to keep our shelves well stocked and our House clean and safe.

Tickets and Gifts

Sometimes, in-kind donations are a special perk or experience to share with a family, like tickets to a sporting event or concert. Donations can also be used as raffle or auction prizes to help raise money for the House at special events. If you have tickets, gifts, or an idea for a special experience that you’d like to donate, contact Mark Shouger at 312.888.2501.

Professional Services

Donations of professional services help to cover services needed at the House and can significantly reduce our operating costs. Services such as carpet cleaning, window washing, appliance repair, printing and much more are needed. Contact us to discuss a donation of your professional services.

Planned Giving Donors

Planned Giving

It’s no secret that the work we do to change children’s lives depends upon your goodwill. A planned gift is one way for you to share your goodwill. Planned giving is finding ways to make charitable gifts now, or after your lifetime, while enjoying financial benefits for yourself.
