Ronald McDonald House Charities Dayton

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

Levels of Support

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.

Keeping Families Close

Your donation helps to provide Love, Healing, and Hope.

Many families depend on the cradle of support the House provides while their babies and children are hospitalized.  We believe that healing happens together and children find the strength they need when their families are by their side.
