How Does McDonald's Help?

Often we are asked about our relationship with McDonald’s. The McDonald’s system, including local owner/operators, suppliers, employees, and customers provide valuable annual support for our programs. Their support, extends from monetary contributions to volunteerism to board participation, and has helped us impact thousands of lives by helping us create a community of comfort and hope for our guest families.

Proceeds from donations made at local McDonald’s restaurants and support from the McDonald’s system make up less than 10% of our annual revenue, and the remainder of our multi-million dollar budget is generated through the generosity of individuals, corporations, and foundations.
