In 2013, Ronald McDonald House of Winston-Salem provided a “home away from home” for about 900 families, thanks to the generous support from our donors and volunteers.
While the actual cost of operating each room per night is $70, we ask that families pay just $10 per night of their stay and no one is turned away due to inability to pay. Donations from our families constitute only about 1% of the annual operating budget. The majority of funding needed to operate our House is provided by individuals, corporations, foundations, churches, and civic groups.
Funds are raised in a variety of ways, including:
17% Corporations and Foundations
16% Sport a Shirt, Share a Night Fundraiser
13% Friends of the Ronald McDonald House
13% Ronald McDonald House Charities of North Carolina
8% Civic Groups, Churches, Temples
6% Third Party Fundraisers & In Kind Donations
1% Room Fees
An endowment fund has been established with the Winston-Salem Foundation and donations to this fund are welcome.
