How you can help
Other ways to help
Fundraise for RMHC VIC & TAS
When a child is diagnosed with a serious illness, it can have a devastating impact on families. As well as the uncertainty and fear, there is the added stress for families who don't live close to the medical care their child needs.
Without your support, we would be unable to keep our doors open to families in, 365 days a year. Thanks, to the public, we have been able to continually expand our operations to help more families.
See how you can get involved today!
Leave a Gift in your Will
Leaving a gift in your will, or a bequest, is a wonderful legacy for future generations. Anyone can leave a charitable bequest. It is a powerful way to make a positive impact on the future, without affecting your finances in the present.
Whenever the time is right for you, please consider remembering Ronald McDonald House Charities Victoria & Tasmania in your Will. Your gift will provide love, care and support for seriously ill children and their families whenever they need it.

Adopt A Room
Adopting a room is a unique opportunity to assist us in providing the highest level of comfort possible to our families. The proceeds of your adoption allow us to cover the costs associated with that room, including linen, electricity, maintenance, etc.
Your adopted room will bear a plaque with your name on it, and we will keep you up-to-date with news, events and invitations to the exciting things happening at our Houses.
For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Volunteer with us
Our volunteers are an invaluable asset to our Houses & Family Rooms and are actively involved in a number of roles from housekeeping to administration, special events and cooking meals for our families.
Alternatively, please contact email@example.com
Become a House Hero
Times are tough for everyone at the moment but for sick children and their families the new uncertainty we all face is nothing new. Let's show sick children and their families that we are here for them by making small regular donations.
Sign up for our House Hero Program today so we can continue to care for sick children and their families 365 days a year.
Adopt a Pantry
Each family staying at a Ronald McDonald House is assigned their own pantry in one of our nine kitchens across our four Houses.
We are offering the exclusive opportunity to Adopt a Pantry to help us support families who need to stay at Ronald McDonald House to be close to their child in hospital.
We will create a personalised plaque with your name or logo to be displayed on your adopted pantry in one of bustling kitchens at the House of your choice. For more information on this exclusive offer, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Group Volunteering experience is a unique opportunity for the wider community to give practical and monetary support that directly makes a difference to the lives of families with a seriously ill or injured child.
Bring your team to one of the Houses to cook for our families or participate in a working bee. Experience first-hand the positive impact that volunteering at Ronald McDonald House has on both your team and the families staying at the houses.
