Make a Difference Before the Year Ends
Now more than ever, we need your help to reach our giving goal so we can keep helping families when they need it most.
From now to May 11, we’re raising $1,000,000 to help families get better together.
Are you ready to make an impact?
What’s the Un-Gala?
To protect the health and safety of our community, we’re changing the way we hold our Annual Gala, and we’re inviting our entire community to get involved. Now, more than ever, we need you.
While the world around us is on pause, pediatric illness does not stop. Neither does the work we do to provide families with shelter, comfort, safety, and reliability when they need it most.
Join us online (here!) for our first-ever month-long Un-Gala through May 11 for inspiration and fun, all to help families get better together.
Because together, we are still family.
We have a great family, we have great friends, we have a great support system, but if we didn’t have the Ronald McDonald House, things would be so much more challenging.”
We served 18,209 children last year across our Ronald McDonald Houses, Family Rooms, and Care Mobile programs.
Families saved $8.7 million in food and lodging costs in 2019 by staying at one of our five area Ronald McDonald Houses or three Ronald McDonald Family Rooms.
We provided nearly 45,000 nights to families in need so they could stay near their hospitalized child.
