Our Relationship with McDonald’s
Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern Nevada is an autonomous non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation located in Reno, Nevada. While McDonald’s is an incredibly supportive founding mission partner, the Reno House is tasked with raising the majority of its funding each year from local donors as no single company could support us alone. Still, few community partners have been as integral to our work of keeping families close as McDonald’s. Northern Nevada owner/operators have helped us provide for our families since we opened our doors and continue to raise money for us in their restaurants.
McDonald’s lends their collective advertising dollars, restaurant packaging and the hospitality of their team members to create customer awareness and support for RMHC. Globally, McDonald’s is the largest corporate donor contributing to Ronald McDonald Houses, lending their worldwide presence to bring awareness through in-restaurant fundraisers and extending the wealth of their business network to their charity partners.
McDonald’s involvement extends beyond monetary support:
- Franchises partner with the Reno Ronald McDonald House to help us promote events and maximize our fundraising potential.
- McDonald’s employees are dedicated volunteers.
- Owner/operators serve on both Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern Nevada board of trustees as well as global RMHC boards and advisory councils.
- Donation Boxes hosted in restaurants are one of the largest sources of ongoing RMHC fundraising.
