The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Dayton® provides a home-away-from-home to hundreds of families of critically ill or injured, hospitalized babies and children each year. Our actual cost for providing a room and other amenities to these families is approximately $150 per night. Families are asked for a suggested room fee of $15 per night to help defray expenses, but no one is ever turned away due to an inability to pay.
Your support of our Adopt-A-Room program allows families to stay close to their hospitalized children while enjoying a comfortable, private bedroom with bath, laundry services, meals and snacks, plus the camaraderie and support of other families in the same situation.
In addition to the knowledge that you have helped a family find comfort during a most stressful situation, your donation will be recognized in the following ways:
- Recognition on a special Adopt-A-Room plaque
- A listing on our website
- An invitation to an annual appreciation event

Consider a Gift of Honor
Room sponsorships are a thoughtful way to recognize your friends, family, or business associates on birthdays, anniversaries, or other special occasions. It is also a meaningful way to pay loving tribute to a deceased relative or friend.
