The partnership between McDonald’s Corporation and Ronald McDonald House Charities and its programs dates back to the inception of the charitable organization. Collectively McDonald’s utilize their restaurants, advertising dollars, packaging and crew to create customer awareness and support of the charity. Ronald McDonald House Charities® and the McDonald’s Corporation (owner/operators, employees, customers and vendors) also provide financial support for Ronald McDonald House of Delaware. 10% to 15% of our annual operating budget is received through the support of the local Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Philadelphia Region and local McDonald’s Owners/Operators. They also participate in fundraisers, volunteer their time to special events, and serve on our Board of Directors.
