Our Relationship with McDonald’s

From the moment the first Ronald McDonald House opened in Philadelphia,  PA in 1974, the entire McDonald’s system (owner/operators, suppliers, employees and customers) has helped 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 RMH Chapters around the world.

RMHWM is a separate, non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation from the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  RMHWM raises 100% of its annual operating expenses, and 100% stays local.  The McDonald’s system is our largest corporate partner, and the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Outstate Michigan is our largest grant funder.
