Your Kindness Makes a Huge Difference

Each year the number of families served at the Idaho Ronald McDonald House increases. They need a welcoming, comfortable place to stay when they travel far from home for the medical treatment their children need. Every effort makes a difference to these families.

Monetary Gifts

The dollars you give help keep families together during their darkest days. You can pay for a family’s stay, contribute in memory or honor of a loved one, or make a general gift. No matter what the size, it matters, and it all stays in Idaho to help Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho.

  • Make a general donation at any time.
  • Give in memory or honor of a friend or loved one.
  • Celebrate a momentous occasion such as a birthday, anniversary, or graduation with a gift to RMHC of Idaho – a great way to honor someone special.
  • Contribute to the Share A Night program – For only $10, you can give families of ill or injured children a “home-away-from-home” by providing a night stay at the Idaho Ronald McDonald House. Families are asked to contribute $10 per night, but no family is ever turned away because they cannot pay. Make your Share A Night Donation today.
  • Become a Sustaining Donor which gives RMHC of Idaho a steady source of continued support while balancing your annual giving throughout the year. It’s easy and efficient to set up a  donation in the amount of your choosing that is automatically charged to your credit card or debited from your checking account. You may adjust your donation or cancel it at any time. You can also set-up a monthly donation through your bank using their bill pay system.

Santa’s Workshop Donations

For the holidays, the Idaho Ronald McDonald House will re-create “Santa’s Workshop”, where house guests can go “shopping” for their families in a stress-free environment. While medical personnel take care of children facing a medical crisis, we are focused on taking care of their families. Slip on your elf shoes and help us fill Santa’s Workshop with a wide variety of gifts. This will make a world of difference for our guest families by helping make their holiday preparations easier. Your participation will allow families to stay focused on the care and recovery of their children.

If you’re in need of inspiration, check out our 2018 Santas Workshop Wish List or Santa’s Workshop Gift Basket Ideas. We will accept donations 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. daily through December 22nd.

Gifts must be new, in original packaging and unwrapped. Thank you for making the holidays bright for our families.
