Keeping families close® thanks to the generosity of our wonderful corporate and community partners.
Our Mission Partner: McDonald’s
Ronald McDonald Houses have been McDonald’s “charity of choice” since the first House was founded in Philadelphia in 1974.
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Indiana (RMHCCIN) is an independent non-for-profit organization governed by a local board of directors. McDonald’s is one of our significant corporate donors. Portions of our annual operating costs are contributed through our relationships with Central Indiana McDonald’s owner/operators. This includes funds contributed by McDonald’s customers through Ronald McDonald House Charities donation boxes hosted in Central Indiana restaurants. McDonald’s owner/operators also have a history of making substantial contributions to RMHCCIN building and expansion projects.
McDonald’s involvement extends even beyond the above to include:
- McDonald’s employees support the RMHCCIN as volunteers and meal program participants.
- McDonald’s owner/operators and corporate employees are represented on the RMHCCIN Board of Directors and various committees.
- McDonald’s owner/operators and the regional corporate office often sponsor and/or attend RMHCCIN fundraising events and activities.
- The McDonald’s network of suppliers often provides both monetary support and in-kind donations of services and supplies.
Although McDonald’s is a loyal and generous corporate donor, no one company can solely fund the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Indiana. The remainder of our annual operating income is secured through the generosity of individuals, foundations, civic & service organizations, churches, schools and many other corporate donors. We depend on the entire Central Indiana community and greatly value the wide range of support for our very important mission.
