Room Sponsorship

Room Sponsorship

Help give families a place to lay their heads.

If it wasn’t for the love and charity that makes this place what it is, we would have been forced to sleep in the car.

  • It costs more than $150 per night to provide our services to each family, but we rely on community support and donations to cover these costs.
  • Your room sponsorship helps ensure that we can continue to serve families who need us, free of charge.

What Your Room Sponsorship Means to Families

Families staying at our 53-family Cleveland or 42-family Akron Ronald McDonald House experience a sense of comfort, normalcy, comradery and compassion that helps them remain strong for their children. Spacious private rooms, beautiful common areas, daily meals and other amenities ease their stress and financial burdens, allowing them to focus on their children’s care.

Inside this room, we got to focus on our daughter's health. We didn't have to worry about meals. We felt safe.

For individuals, groups, corporations or foundations desiring to make a significant gift to support families on an ongoing basis, Permanent Room Sponsorships are available. Your $50,000 donation allows families staying in your room to know they have your steadfast support in their greatest hours of need. Families for years to come will feel it every time they see your plaque outside their door. In addition to the benefits of annual room sponsorship, permanent room sponsors are recognized with a larger, permanent plaque and honored in selected events.

Naming opportunities for common area and selected programs are available for those who wish to leave a legacy.
