How to Help

First of all, thanks for asking! Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Wisconsin relies on the generosity of thousands of donors, the ingenuity of local volunteers, and the dedication of our staff to keep our doors open 365 days a year.

There are countless ways you can help make a difference and we are truly grateful for your support. Host a party, holiday activity, craft project or prepare a meal for the children and families who are staying at the Ronald McDonald House.



The Ronald McDonald House relies on generous donors like you to operate our House. We suggest that families pay $20 a night, but we never turn a family away who is unable to pay.
