Making our way to $5 Million

We recently confirmed more than $3.6 million in cash and pledges in our efforts to make room for more families in need of a “home away from home!”

One recent donation from a longtime supporter of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Las Vegas was for $250,000 from the Del E. Webb Foundation! They have been a loyal supporter of our mission for several years now. Their generous past support helped us construct, and later remodel, our first House, build our community’s first Ronald McDonald Family Room at Sunrise Children’s Hospital, and treat more children from low-income families aboard our Care Mobile Dental Van. And now, they are helping to cover a portion of the construction costs of a second Ronald McDonald House.

We’ve been blown away by the outpouring of support we’ve received during the past year, starting with our current and past RMHC Board Members, the Las Vegas McDonald’s Owner/Operators, our young professionals organization, the Red Shoe Society, RMHC Global, Jeunesse Kids, longtime individual donors, foundations, and companies, such as Mrs. Victoria Fertitta, the Engelstad Foundation, and The Private Bank by Nevada State Bank, families touched by the Ronald McDonald House, as well as supporters from the construction industry, including the PENTA Building Group and JCJ Architecture.

We are so grateful to have them by our side as we work to eliminate our waiting list, eliminate the need to put families in costly hotels until rooms open up under our roof, and to ensure that RMHC’s doors will always remain open to families in need.

If you would like to join our fundraising efforts with a donation, please contact Jacqueline Cruz, Chief Development Officer, at jacqueline@rmhlv.org.
