Keeping Families Close

Since opening in 1985, Ronald McDonald House Charities Ann Arbor (RMHCAA) has welcomed over 26,000 families.  These families travel a distance from their homes, arriving from out of state and from other countries.  Their length of stay may range from a day or two to several months.  Our families include moms and dads, brothers and sisters, grandpas and grandmas — RMHCAA is here to keep families together during their difficult time.

Ronald McDonald House Charities Ann Arbor is incorporated in Michigan as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is the legal name under which the Ronald McDonald Houses of Ann Arbor operate. Donations to the House are tax deductible as allowed by law. Customers in McDonald’s Restaurants in the area support the charity through donation boxes and promotions such as the “Give A Hand” and other in-restaurant promotions.
