Ways to Help
Ronald McDonald House (RMH) is fortunate to have a fantastic group of corporate partners whose generous contributions have enabled our charity to bring comfort and care to thousands of families. These partnerships are an important strategic alliance between major organisations and Ronald McDonald House, building warm and positive relationships with all sectors of the community. Organisations can help by contributing financially, adopting a room, becoming an operational partner or donating products or services.
WHY BECOME A CORPORATE PARTNER?
Organisations partner with Ronald McDonald House for a range of reasons. Often, it’s because RMH is a charity that resonates with their employees; works across the areas of youth, health, education and indigenous or; provides corporate and volunteer engagement opportunities. Corporate partners are able to see the impact they are making in the Sydney community every time they walk into the House. Due to this, it is easy to understand how the partnership directly relates to accommodation provision for regional families. Additionally, RMH understands the value of creating long lasting mutually beneficial partnerships and seeks to do so with the organisation it engages with.
BECOMING AN OPERATIONAL PARTNER
Our Ronald McDonald House in Randwick is a purpose-built building on the Sydney Children's Hospital grounds that is 26 years old in 2017. We are able to accommodate up to 32 families every night.
Operating costs for all our programs now reach over $1 million annually. With operational partnerships in place, RMH can ensure costs are met so our families have a soft place to land, meals and a roof over their heads during a very stressful time.
ADOPTING A ROOM
One way to become part of the RMH family can be to adopt one of our 32 rooms. By adopting a room you can ensure the costs associated with running that room are covered for the entire year.
There are currently 19 out of the 32 rooms adopted, and we seeking additional partners to help ensure all rooms are adopted. Each sponsor has their names on a plaque on the door of their adopted room. Additionally, Adopt a Room supporters receive quarterly updates about the room usage as well as an invitation to an annual House event.
Our Adopt a Room is a great opportunity to become part of the RMH family and know you are helping provide accommodation for families caring for a seriously ill or injured child.
