Our Relationship with McDonald’s
RMHC Founding Mission Partner since 1974
In Phoenix, Ronald McDonald Houses are owned and operated by Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central and Northern Arizona. All of our funding comes from private and charitable donations. Although McDonald’s restaurants are very involved in our fundraising efforts, none of the Ronald McDonald Houses are owned by McDonald’s. We have a licensing agreement with McDonald’s enabling us to use the RMHC name and logo.
McDonald’s plays a critical role sponsoring fundraisers in the restaurants to benefit RMHC, including the canister donations from the public. In addition, McDonald’s owner/operators serve on our Board of Directors and volunteer their expertise in many areas, such as construction, finance, public relations, marketing and management.
