Charity Program

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southeastern Michigan Grant Program

The national body of Ronald McDonald House Charities and its global network of local charities has awarded more than $380 million in grants to organizations supporting children worldwide. Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southeastern Michigan awards grants to qualified charities providing support to children throughout our local service area. We are committed to funding solutions that address children’s issues. Wherever there is a need, big or small, Ronald McDonald House Charities is ready to meet it head on.


Achieving our agenda for children – helping to ensure strong minds, strong bodies and safe, supportive places to grow – is possible only with the support of individual donors, corporate partners and the McDonald’s family, which carries the heritage established by Ray Kroc, in whose memory Ronald McDonald House Charities was established. McDonald’s franchises and suppliers are major contributors of time and money on the local level. McDonald’s customers contribute millions of dollars each year world wide by dropping change into donation canisters, supporting fundraisers and organizing other events throughout their communities. Important funding beyond McDonald’s generosity is imperative to the success of our grant program. Locally, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southeastern Michigan receives donations from many corporate partners, as well as individual donors providing needed contributions which are directed toward the programs we support.
