Special Giving Opportunities

Adopt-A-Room

The Adopt-A-Room program offers a year-long sponsorship of one of the 31 guest rooms in our Main House.  Adopt-A-Room supporters have an incredible impact on families who call their room “home” while their child is hospitalized.

RMHCAA is proud to recognize our generous Adopt-A-Room supporters.  Recognition features signage inside your adopted guest room that will be seen by hundreds of individuals each year.  You will have the satisfaction of knowing you have helped the family of an ill or injured child when they need it most.

A guest room accommodating up to four guests can be adopted for a donation of $2,500 a year.  A larger guest room that accommodates up to six guests can be adopted for a donation of $3,500.

Doors of Hope are another way for people to help Ronald McDonald House Charities keep families close. The fairy doors are meant to symbolize the hope we offer to those who enter our doors each day.

Doors of Hope

Ann Arbor’s famous fairy doors have spread their whimsy to our Main House in a unique art installation entitled Doors of Hope.  The fairy doors are meant to symbolize the hope we offer to those who enter our doors each day.  Funds raised through the Doors of Hope are used to support overnight stays for families and general operations of the House.

Doors of Hope are available for a donation of $1,000, which can be from one gift or multiple gifts collected from family and friends.  Donors are able to choose a door from our colorful, whimsical selection.  The door’s “welcome mat” is personalized to display your name and/or message of hope.  Doors can also be purchased in memory or honor of an individual.

Memorial Leaves

Many families wish to celebrate the life of a loved one with a Memorial Leaf on one of our Memorial Trees.  These beautiful, copper leaves can be engraved with a loved one’s name and added to our Memorial Tree installation in the atrium area of our Main House.

Memorial Leaves are available for a $500 donation, which can be from one gift or multiple gifts collected from family and friends.
