    house with hands logoThe Challenge

    Over the last decade, San Francisco’s medical facilities have greatly expanded their specialized pediatric care services, particularly at the new UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital at Mission Bay. As a result, a growing number of families are seeking the services of the Ronald McDonald House. In order to meet the increased demand, we must continue to grow our programs and services.

    Our Solution

    In 2010, leaders of the Ronald McDonald House launched Hearts & Hands, a five-year comprehensive fundraising campaign enabling Ronald McDonald House to triple the number of families with critically ill children served. In the past five years through the “Hearts & Hands Campaign,” RMH-SF has successfully opened a second House inside UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital at Mission Bay and completed its final year of initiatives. The funds targeted vital renovations of the current House on Scott Street, supporting the growth of our beloved hospital-based family programs, and covering the costs of operating two facilities.

    We Exceeded Our Goal!

    RMHC-Sweden-2011-10 - compressedOur San Francisco Ronald McDonald House “Hearts & Hands” campaign came to a close in December 2015. With support from our generous contributors, we exceeded our campaign goal of $8.2 million and raised $8.5 million. We look forward to strengthening our family meals events, parent support group and bedside cart program for young patients. We’re deeply grateful for everyone’s support.
