Other ways to give

Whether it is leaving money in your will or making a donation in memory of a loved one, we hope it brings you some comfort to know that by supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities UK you will be helping us to keep even more families near their sick children in hospital.

Leave a legacy

A gift in your will could help us to support thousands more children and families who need us, now and in the future.

Remembering our Charity in your will

Making a will guarantees our loved ones are cared for once we have gone, and is also an opportunity to support a charity that we feel passionately about. We understand that your loved ones come first. After you’ve taken care of the people closest to you, a small percentage of whatever is left of your estate could make a huge difference to families with children in hospital.

Many families choose to donate in memory of their loved one to their charity of choice. We really appreciate your guidance for our supporters. Please get in touch with InMemoryRMHC@uk.mcd.com if you would like to receive: Ronald McDonald House Charities Gift Aid envelopes or In Memory giving leaflets to distribute, detailing how these donations support the Charity.

Please make any cheques payable to Ronald McDonald House Charities and send to the following address:

We will acknowledge receipt of the donation to yourselves and send an acknowledgement to the supporter. We really appreciate the support Funeral Directors provide to Ronald McDonald House Charities in providing free home away from home accommodation for families to be close to their child in hospital.

It costs us £35 per night to accommodate one family and last year donations made in memory of loved ones were the equivalent of 1,000 nights for families staying in our Houses. Thank you for your continued support.
