The Ronald McDonald House of Tulsa keeps families together in times of medical crisis.
Each year, hundreds of children travel to Tulsa to be treated for serious illnesses or injury. For their families, anxiety over the child’s illness is often compounded by lengthy hospital stays, months of outpatient treatment, and the expense of being away from work and home. If not for Ronald McDonald House of Tulsa families – including brothers, sisters, and grandparents – would spend their days and nights in hotels, their cars, or hospital waiting rooms to be close to their sick children.
Ronald McDonald House of Tulsa is a standalone 501(c)(3) corporation. It is a Chapter member of Ronald McDonald House Charities, Inc., an alliance of Houses in 64 countries and serving 5.5 million children and families annually.
The House operates through its Board of Directors and Advisory Board, comprised of parents, health professionals, McDonald’s representatives, community volunteers, business and civic leaders, all working together to provide this much-needed service.
Income streams consist of donations and endowment earnings. Almost everything needed to run a home has been donated at one time or another as an in-kind gift. Everything from food, toothpaste, and laundry soap… to beds, televisions, furniture, and a House van to help with transportation. Cash is generated through giving programs, fundraisers, planned giving, and bequests.
The community is our greatest support and most powerful partner. Together we light the path of hope for hospitalized children and their families.
