McDonald’s Relationship

McDonald’s has been RMHC’s Founding Mission Partner since 1974.

For over 40 years, McDonald’s has been RMHC’s Founding Mission Partner, providing support through in store fundraising, raising awareness about our mission, and volunteering by McDonald’s employees. The McDonald’s system is our mission partner, dating back to the inception of RMHC over 43 years ago. Every year a portion of our annual operating costs are funded through the donation boxes located at area McDonald’s restaurants, equating to 11% in 2016, as well as other fundraising efforts, including Give a Hand and RMHC 365. The remainder of our annual operating income is provided by generous individuals and corporate donors. We rely on the support we receive from the entire community and greatly value anything you can do to help us Keep Families Close, whether it’s through cash donations, sharing your time or hosting a fundraiser on our behalf.
