Our Mission

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Iowa is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to
creating, finding, and supporting programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children.

Our History

Why Ronald McDonald House?

The idea for a Ronald McDonald House began in Philadelphia in 1973, when Fred Hill, a member of the
Philadelphia Eagles football team, learned that his three year old daughter, Kim, had leukemia. The
Eagles organized fundraising efforts to assist Kim's, as well as other children's, fight against leukemia.
During the course of these efforts, the idea of a 'home-away-from-home' where out-of-town families
could stay during their child's hospital treatment was born.

Why Ronald McDonald?

The Eagles enlisted the help of their local McDonald's restaurants to raise money for the first-ever
house. In 1974, the Philadelphia House opened bearing the name of McDonald's happy clown, Ronald
McDonald. Today there are over 300 Ronald McDonald Houses worldwide, all serving the needs
of families during their child's hospitalization. Each House is independently owned and operated.
McDonald's is only one of many generous donors, so community-wide support is the essential
ingredient for each House.

The Ronald McDonald House of Iowa City

The Ronald McDonald House of Iowa City, opened in 1985, has been a "home away from home" for over
70,000 family members from all 99 Iowa Counties, all 50 states, and 55 foreign countries. Since opening,
the Ronald McDonald House has grown in capacity from 15 rooms to the current capacity of 31 rooms
following the House expansion in 1999-2001.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Iowa

In 2008 the organization embarked on an expanded mission to help families and children in Eastern
Iowa outside the walls of the Ronald McDonald House, resulting in a change in our organizational
name to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Iowa. The Ronald McDonald House of Iowa City
continues to operate as the cornerstone program while enabling the grant and scholarship programs to
make a significant impact in surrounding communities.

Since 2008, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Iowa has provided funding to 32 non-profit
organizations whose programs improve the quality of life for children and their families in Eastern Iowa.
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Iowa has also offered 22 scholarships to graduating seniors
from Eastern Iowa intent on continuing their education after high school.
