Ronald McDonald House Charities Dayton

Leave a Legacy of Hope

You can make a difference in securing the future of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Dayton® by joining our Legacy of Hope Society. Members are individuals or families who commit to a planned gift from their estate benefiting the House at a later date.

We have partnered with the Dayton Foundation to make your planned giving experience easy and meaningful. The most common form of planned giving is a designation in a will or trust. Other options include Charitable Gift Annuities or confirming the House as a beneficiary in life insurance policies, IRAs, pension plans or retirement funds. It is not necessary to share the amount of your future gift, just verification of your plans.

Members are recognized each year at our Annual Meeting and by a listing on our website (if desired). Those who wish to remain Anonymous are welcome to do so. For more information, consult your financial advisor or contact Karen Dempsey Volke, our Chief Development Officer, at [email protected] or 937-224-0047, x. 16.

Keeping Families Close

Your donation helps KEEP FAMILIES CLOSE

Many families depend on the cradle of support the House and Family Room provide 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.

Your contribution helps Ronald McDonald House Charities of Dayton continue to be a beacon of hope for hospitalized children and their families.
