Third Party Fundraising
Help Us Help Families.
Thank you for choosing to organize a Fundraising Campaign or Event to benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Iowa & Western Illinois (RMHC-EIWI). We truly appreciate your efforts to keep families close to each other and the care they need, when they need it most.
Through the Ronald McDonald House of Iowa City and 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, and more.
Families from all backgrounds are welcome and guests are never turned away due to an inability to contribute toward their stay.
RMHC-EIWI welcomes our community’s initiatives to help further promote awareness of our programs. However, due to limited staff time, RMHC-EIWI must commit its resources to the number of internal fundraising events already being offered to sustain services. The nature of third party events limits us because we cannot schedule, budget, nor predict a reliable source of revenue from such events. By taking on a fundraiser campaign or event, the third party assumes the responsibility of creating a successful event without a significant level of assistance from RMHC-EIWI.
Thank you for your support!
Let’s get started helping families.
The first step is to get your fundraising activity approved by RMHC-EIWI. Before you begin fundraising or promoting your event or campaign, please complete these steps:
- Review the Third-Party Fundraiser Policies & Guidelines document.
- Fill out the Community Fundraiser Application
- Upon approval you may begin fundraising.
Here are some resources to help you get started.
Consult with RMHC-EIWI development staff if you have questions or need advice along the way!
