Our Relationship with McDonald's
While the McDonald's corporation is a partner in care, Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland is neither owned nor fully funded by McDonald's. Local McDonald's owner/operators and their customers support our Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland through donations to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northeast Ohio . In turn, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northeast Ohio donates a portion of these proceeds to our Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland – equaling about 4% of our operating budget. Several owner/operators and McDonald's corporate employees serve on our Board of Directors or volunteer in many other ways.
Additionally, McDonald’s supports the Ronald McDonald House Charities Global organization which provides training and support to our House. McDonald's vendors, such as Anderson-DuBose and Coca-Cola, are also donors to the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland.
