Our Relationship With Mcdonald’s

RMHC Founding Mission Partner Since 1974

Our Mission Partner

From the moment the doors opened at the first Ronald McDonald House in Philadelphia, PA, the McDonald’s system including owner/operators, suppliers, employees and customers, have helped us support families with sick children by providing stability and vital resources. For 33 years, Central Texas McDonald’s Owner/Operators have opened their hearts, providing invaluable support and fueling our growth serving more than 3,000 children and families annually.

Local McDonald’s Support

Today we are stronger than ever due in large part to the continued outpouring resources from the Central Texas McDonald’s Owner/Operators and McDonald’s Operator Association of Bryan-College Station. Their unwavering support includes helping our families through monetary and sponsorship contributions, participating on our board, community advisory councils, and special events committees. They have helped thousands of families by keeping them close to their critically ill or injured children.

Although the McDonald’s system is our largest corporate partner, RMHC CTX is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation and no one company solely funds the growth of RMHC programs and services necessary to serve more families. We also rely on the support of the entire community and greatly value all donations to RMHC CTX, whether it’s through time, talent or treasure.
