Ronald McDonald House of Winston-Salem, Inc., is an independent, community supported 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

In 2018, Ronald McDonald House of Winston-Salem provided a “home-away-from-home” for 1,056 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. However, 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:

Public Support and Revenue:

  • 39% Individuals
  • 14% Sport a Shirt, Share a Night Fundraiser
  • 11% Ronald McDonald House Charities of North Carolina
  • 9% In-Kind Donations
  • 8% Friends of the Ronald McDonald House
  • 7% Corporations and Foundations
  • 5% Civic/Faith Groups
  • 5% Dickie Britt Memorial Classic Golf Tournament
  • 1% Third-Party Fundraisers
  • 1% Room Fees

An endowment fund has been established with the Winston-Salem Foundation and donations to this fund are welcome.
