Adopt a Program

Fore The Families

Our annual “Fore the Families” golf outing is one of RMHC-EIWI’s largest fundraisers each year and has raised over $920,000 since its inception. This event will take place on June 6, 2022 at Finkbine Golf Course, and it is co-sponsored by Iowa City- Thursday Noon Rotary Club. 

“Adopt a RMH Program” was created in lieu of a Silent Auction to help raise more money while directly supporting programs that support our families. See below the many ways you can help an RMH family!

Your Donation Provides a Toy for One Child: $20

Every registered child at the Ronald McDonald House of Iowa City receives a free toy before they go home! Shopping in our” Toy Closet” is always a special moment for families as kids browse a huge collection of dolls, puzzles, trucks, and so much more.


Your Donation Feeds a Family for One Day: $35

RMHC-EIWI serves families at three locations:

  • Ronald McDonald House of Iowa City
  • Family Room at St. Luke’s Hospital – Cedar Rapids
  • Family Room at University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital.
A hot meal is served at all three locations every night of the week. Families always have a home-cooked meal ready for them after a long day at the hospital.

Your Donation Covers One Night for One Family: $90

Through the Ronald McDonald House of Iowa City and our Family Rooms in Iowa City and Cedar Rapids, we help remove the barriers that separate families while they receive treatment for a critically ill or injured child.

We’re more than just a place to stay—our House and Family Rooms provide the essential comforts of home: warm beds, hot showers, home-cooked meals, kitchen and laundry facilities, a playground, recreation areas, and more.


Your Donation Provides Fruit and Vegetables for One Week: $150

Throughout the day families are constantly going back and forth from the Ronald McDonald House to the hospital or from our Family Room to their child’s hospital room. Providing fruits and vegetables for families make the perfect on-the-go breakfast or the key ingredient to a healthy lunch.

Your Donation Helps Provide One Evening Meal: $250

Mealtime at the Ronald McDonald House helps kids and families maintain the routine of family dinners, shown to be a key to in building resiliency, lowering the risk of depression, and encouraging family conversation. Having that small piece of normalcy helps families cope and ensures that healthy family members have the nutrition and support they need to take care of themselves, so they have the strength to care for their sick child.

Your Donation Covers One Week for One Family: $630

Illness doesn’t ask if you are ready. No parent expects to see their child in the hospital. When our families come to our House and Family Rooms, many don’t know how long their stay will last or when they can go back home.
