Our Relationship with McDonald’s

From the day we opened the Ronald McDonald House in Des Moines, IA in 1981, the entire local McDonald’s system of owner/operators, suppliers, employees, and customers have helped us support families with critically ill children.  Their support has allowed us to provide stability and vital resources to them.

McDonald’s support extends from monetary contributions and volunteerism, to cause related marketing promotions and the space to place RMHC Donation Boxes that raise money for our chapter.  McDonald’s has helped RMHC positively impact thousands of children and their families locally, and continues to provide valuable resources and support to help us expand our core programs and services.

Although the McDonald’s system is our largest corporate partner, RMHC is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation.  RMHC relies on the support of the entire community and greatly values donations from the community and other corporate partners.
