Founding Mission Partner


From the moment we opened our first Ronald McDonald House in Philadelphia, the entire McDonald’s system (owner/operators, suppliers, employees and customers) help us support families with sick children providing stability and vital resources.

McDonald’s support extends from monetary contributions and volunteerism, to cause related marketing promotions like The Round Up Program and McFlurry Program. These new programs allow customers to round up their total to the nearest dollar and purchase McFlurrys where 10 cents per McFlurry purchased goes toward RMHC Chapters raising money around the world. McDonald’s has helped RMHC positively impact millions of children and their families, and continues to provide valuable resources and support to help us expand our core programs and services.

Although the McDonald’s system is our largest corporate partner, RMHC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. RMHC relies on the support of the entire community and greatly values donations from the community and other corporate partners.


  • RMHC has local Chapters in more than 64 countries and regions around the world
  • More than $335 million has been collected through RMHC Donation Boxes
  • At least one RMHC core program provides care for children and their families being served at 90% of the top children’s hospitals worldwide
