Who We Are

We know that families are stronger when they are together, and their presence helps a sick child heal faster and cope better.

While Ronald McDonald House Charities cannot make medicine taste better or take away painful treatments, we can help lessen the burden and ensure 7 million families a year have the stability and resources they need to keep their child healthy and happy.

For 39 years, our approach has been to think globally but act locally by tailoring our programs to address the most urgent needs of each community we serve. With a network of local Chapters, our core programs can be found in 57 countries and regions around the globe:

Ronald McDonald House
Ronald McDonald Family Room
Ronald McDonald Care Mobile
Local Chapters at Work
RMHC U.S. Scholarships

We’re committed to making the most of the generosity of our donors, volunteers and friends.

  • 90 cents of every dollar spent is used to fund programs globally.
  • McDonald’s Corporation pays for most of RMHC Global’s administrative costs, so your donations go directly to the people who need it.
  • Each program has more demand than we can currently meet. In fact, RMHC and our local Chapters project opening the 350th Ronald McDonald House by 2015.
