Founding Mission Partners

We are grateful for the organizations who have been with us since our start.


McDonald’s Corporation is a Founding Mission Partner of RMHC since 1978.

The owner/operators of our local McDonald’s restaurants have been tremendous supporters of our House since the very beginning: their leadership gift helped make our first House possible back in 1980. Since then, they have been some of our strongest advocates, serving on our Board and championing our mission to their customers. They are focused wholeheartedly on making our House a safe, warm and welcoming home for our guest families.

McDonald’s customers show their support by donating change in local restaurant donation boxes, asking to “Round-Up For RMHC,” purchasing a Shamrock Shake or Happy Meal, or purchasing a Sleeve for Support. These donations support RMHC Dayton and our families.

in 2022 over $120,000 was raised for RMHC Dayton through McDonald's Round up program. next time you order McDonalds, ask to round up for RMHC
