Our Relationship with McDonald’s

RMHC Founding Mission Partner since 1974

From the moment we opened our first Ronald McDonald House in Philadelphia, PA in 1974, the entire McDonald’s system (owner/operators, suppliers, employees and customers) has helped 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 and the space to place RMHC Donation Boxes that raise money for Chapters 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 we are proud to call McDonald’s our founding partner, Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Central and Northern Arizona is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. We rely on the support of the entire community and greatly value donations from individual donors, foundations and other corporate partners.
