In 2016, Ronald McDonald House of Winston-Salem provided a “home away from home” for 1,208 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:
16% Sport a Shirt, Share a Night Fundraiser
14% In-Kind Donations
9% Friends of the Ronald McDonald House
8% Ronald McDonald House Charities of North Carolina
8% Corporations and Foundations
6% 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.
