Our McDonald’s Relationship

People often ask us, “What’s your relationship with McDonald’s?”

Ronald McDonald House Charities of WNY opened its doors to families in 1983 with the encouragement and support of 12 local McDonald’s Owner/Operators and their 64 restaurants in Western New York and Northwestern Pennsylvania.

We are tremendously grateful for the support of the McDonald’s Owner/Operators who spearhead promotional and fundraising events on our behalf. Their efforts generate a major portion of the annual operating revenue for the House. They continue to provide vital foundational support to RMHC of WNY through the following activities:

Several local Owner/Operators also serve as volunteers on our Board of Directors and committees and along with McDonald’s employees participate in many local RMHC of WNY fundraising events.
