Round-Up for RMHC
Donate Your Change for RMHC Families
Give to RMHC each time you visit McDonald’s
Every time you visit a McDonald’s restaurant, you can help support families with ill and injured children by choosing to Round-Up for RMHC when you place your order on the kiosk or ask a crew member to Round-Up your total at the counter or drive-thru.
Do my donations help our local RMHC?
Yes! With the option available at approximately 14,000 McDonald’s restaurants nationwide including nearly all restaurants in Utah, western Wyoming and eastern Nevada, customers now have an easier and more convenient way to donate to RMHC and help families with ill or injured children stay together with home-cooked meals, private bedrooms, fully equipped kitchens and laundry facilities near to the medical care they need at leading hospitals, including Primary Children’s Hospital and Shriner’s Hospital in Salt Lake.
Why is McDonald’s offering the option to “Round-Up for RMHC” now?
The technology was developed as part of McDonald’s continued commitment to innovation and technology.
Customers have donated spare change through the RMHC Donation Box for decades and while donations to the collection boxes remain significant, there has been a drop as our society becomes increasingly cashless.
Round-Up For RMHC will provide an additional convenient donation option for customers, regardless of their preferred payment method.
Round-Up for RMHC makes giving easier and McDonald’s hopes this innovative approach to fundraising will continue to support Ronald McDonald House Charities for many years to come.
And of course, you may also drop spare change in any of the RMHC Donation Boxes in restaurants or drive thru.
What Should I know about RMHC of the Intermountain Area?
Our Ronald McDonald House and Ronald McDonald Family Rooms provide a temporary home-away-from-home that serves and sustains families of children receiving treatment at area hospitals.
Through our two core programs, the Ronald McDonald House and Ronald McDonald Family Room, we provide families the ability to face the weight of illness and injury together in close proximity to our local hospitals, including Primary Children’s Hospital, the University of Utah Hospital and Shriner’s Hospital for Children.
What started as a 13-room house in 1988 has grown to a 72-room house in Salt Lake City, along with two Ronald McDonald Family Rooms in Primary Children’s Hospital each with 4-rooms, and Hospitality Carts at Ogden Regional Medical Center and Shriner’s Hospital. RMHC is on track to positively impact over 15,000 families this year!
By offering these programs to pediatric patient families, RMHC saves the average family staying at the Ronald McDonald House over $200 a night in lodging and food expenses.
