Partnership with McDonalds
McDonald’s Corporation, McDonald’s Owners, Customers and Vendors
Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of the Intermountain Area is proud to call McDonald’s our mission partner. We are a local, autonomous, 501(c)3 charitable organization, governed by a 30-member volunteer Board of Directors. Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Intermountain Area has licensing agreements with Ronald McDonald House Charities global and McDonald’s to operate trademarked programs of RMHC. To maintain our licensing agreement, each local RMHC is held to a high standard of program excellence and fiscal accountability. RMHC of the Intermountain Area was established locally with the help of the Kroc Family and McDonald’s.
Local Intermountain Area McDonald’s owner/operators and the entire McDonald’s family generously support RMHC by: sponsoring fundraising partnerships in their restaurants everyday (e.g. Fries for Families, in-store promotions, and collection canisters), sponsoring special events (e.g., Gala, Golf Classic, and other events) and making personal financial & volunteer contributions. Ronald McDonald House Charities Global provides: training support, oversight of the global charity, and assistance securing in-kind gifts and services from vendors (e.g. Kohler, Lazy-Boy, Bissell, Coca Cola, Corian, Brand Source, DirecTV, Benjamin Moore, etc.).
Pediatric guest families are invited to make a minimal contribution toward to cost of their stay as they are able. No family is ever turned away for the inability to pay. Support from our McDonald’s family—together with voluntary guest contributions— comprise approximately 25% of our budget. We rely on and must earn the charitable support of our local community to generously provide approximately 75% of our annual income through private charitable dollars. We appreciate our strong partnership with McDonald’s, and our work is only possible with additional meaningful support from people like you from the communities that we operate in and serve.
