Founding Mission Partner

From the moment the doors opened at the first Ronald McDonald House in Philadelphia, the McDonald’s system, made up of owner/operators, suppliers, employees, and customers have called our mission their own. For more than 45 years, McDonald’s has opened their hearts to us.

Providing an invaluable partnership, McDonald’s has supported us every step of the way, fueling our growth from the original house to a multi-national network of family-centered programs serving more than seven million children and families annually.

Thanks to the unwavering support we receive from our area McDonald’s restaurants and owner/operators, we are able to impact countless lives by giving children support, stability, and the best medicine of all – their families by their side.

Additional funding and volunteer support come from McDonald’s owner/operators, restaurant and regional staff members, and suppliers. McDonald’s customers also support RMHC through a variety of fundraising events and programs, including donations via RMHC Donation Boxes and Roundup.

Ronald McDonald House Charities has been McDonald’s “charity of choice” for over 45 years. From our first House in Philadelphia in 1974, the McDonald’s system has supported us. Owner/Operators, suppliers, employees, and customers have been with us every step of the way.

We thank them for their consistent support over the years and because of their generosity we are able to serve over 1000 families every year. No one corporation or individual alone can fully support all that we do and we rely on the generosity of the Augusta community to share and support our values and mission.
