Ways to Give

There are many ways to make a difference with us each and every day.

Sponsor a Room

Room sponsors play a vital role in directly supporting families who need a place to stay while their children are receiving treatment at area medical centers. FIND OUT MORE

Support our Meal Program

We provide three freshly-prepared meals per day for families staying with us. This not only saves families time and money, it helps to lessen stress by providing a sense of normalcy and relief after difficult days and nights at the hospital. We now also provide boxed lunches for families right at the hospital.  FIND OUT MORE

Host a Fundraiser

Get creative! What do bake sales, golf outings, charity walks, lemonade stands and craft sales and friendly competitions have in common? They’re just some of the ways people have turned their talents into ways to support our mission.  FIND OUT MORE

Fulfill a Wish List

Wish list drives help us keep up with the enormous amount of items we use every day. From cereal and snacks to cleaning supplies, shopping from our wish lists makes sure we have what we need, when we need it.  FIND OUT MORE

Monetary Donations

Your gift keeps families together during challenging times and will always be directed to the program of your choice.

There is no charge for families to stay at one of our Ronald McDonald House programs. The cost to provide a room for a family is more than $150 per night, but we rely on donations to cover these costs.

Our four Family Room programs, two STAR Programs, Care Mobile and RedTreehouse.org are also all available free of charge to families.

Donate Cryptocurrency

We’re now accepting crypto donations!
This gives you a new way to help us inspire hope for families when and where they need it most.
