Ways to Help
Your generous donation will go towards helping regional Western Australian families with sick children receive extra support and care through an extremely hard time in their lives. Donations to Ronald McDonald House will go towards a number of different areas including the cost of accommodation, putting food on the table, keeping the lights on and hot water running. This will also enable us to keep families close during their time of need. There are many ways to lend a helping hand and provide the support that families staying in our House need. Ronald McDonald House Perth is always happy to receive support from the community, however there are times when we cannot accept donations of a certain kind.

You don't have to donate a huge amount to make a difference - you can donate a little, regularly. Regular Givers, or Housemates, are such an important part of the RMH Perth family. By supporting us with a weekly, fortnightly or monthly gift, you can help to ensure that we're able to look to the future, whilst continuing to provide accomodation for regional families with a seriously ill child right now. Become a Housemate today, with a donation of as little as $1 a day. For more information on how you can become a regular giver please email or call the Fundraising Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or on (08) 9346 9000.
By leaving a gift in your Will to Ronald McDonald House Perth, you will help to ensure that regional WA families with sick children are kept close to each other with the care and resources they need. A gift (or bequest) is an instruction you make in your Will, directing that some or all of your estate be gifted to a charity for the benefit of a particular cause. It can be in the form of money, property, shares, debentures, works of art or other valuables.
How to leave a bequest
Don’t worry if you have never made a Will or have no idea how to go about amending an existing one, our team is ready to help. You can call them on 9346 9000 and ask to speak to somebody regarding bequests. Or you can email them at Fundraising.WA@rmhc.org.au
Writing a bequest:
It’s important to word your Will correctly to ensure your wishes are carried exactly as you intend. An example of the type of wording you could include is below:
(i) I give and bequeath [asset description / $[amount] / my whole estate / the residue of my estate / [percentage %] of the residue of my estate]*:
A. to The Home Away From Home Inc (trading as Ronald McDonald House Perth of 21 Monash Avenue, Nedlands WA 6009;
B. if the gift in (A) cannot take effect completely or at all, to the extent that it cannot take effect: to the charitable organisation or organisations in Australia which my executors in their discretion consider most nearly fulfils or fulfil the objects I intend to benefit in the share or shares my executors think fit; and
(ii) the receipt of the treasurer, secretary or public officer for the time being of a beneficiary under this provision is a sufficient discharge to my executors in respect of a gift to that beneficiary.**
*One of the alternatives in the square brackets would be used.
**We note the paragraphs above are simply a guide for the type of wording that may be included as part of your Will. It is important that any gift to RMHCWA is consistent with your other objectives. We recommend you obtain legal advice before finalising your bequest and Will.
