Ways to Help
Ronald McDonald House Charities Western Australia 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 WA 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 organisation it engages with.
BECOMING AN OPERATIONAL PARTNER
The new Ronald McDonald House in Nedlands was officially opened on 9 December 2015 and can accommodate up to 47 families every night. This is a huge increase from the previous 18 bedroom House in Subiaco. Operating costs for all our programs now reach $4.4 million annually. With operational partnerships in place, RMH can ensure costs are met so our regional families have a soft place to land, meals and a roof over their heads during a very stressful time.
One way to become part of the RMH family can be to adopt one of our 47 rooms at RMH Nedlands or one of our 12 rooms at RMH Perth Children's Hospital. By adopting a room you can ensure the costs associated with running that room are covered for the entire year. We currently have 2 rooms at RMH Nedlands requiring sponsorship, with each sponsor having their names on a plaque on the door of their adopted room. Additionally, Adopt-A-Room supporters receive quaterly updates about the room usage as well as an invitation to an annual Adopt-A-Room Appreciation event. It’s a great opportunity to become part of the RMH family and know you are helping keep WA families with sick kids together and near the medical care they need. If you are interested in sponsoring a room or finding out more information, please contact our Partnerships Executive, Matthew Correia on (08) 9346 9000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
