Room Sponsorship at RMHA

Ronald McDonald House Akron (RMHA) has been serving the Akron community since opening its doors in January of 1985. Our mission is to provide a temporary home for those who have loved ones admitted or being treated at Akron Children’s Hospital.

The need for our services has continued to expand with the exponential growth of Akron Children’s Hospital. As it has grown into the largest pediatric health care provider in Northeast Ohio, more and more families need our services. In 2018 alone, we served 12,201 individuals and 601 families.

Our services are provided with the minimal request of a $20 per night donation however, no one is turned away because of an inability to pay. (Our actual cost to operate a room is $90 per night). Last year only 18% of our families were able to contribute to their room donation.

Would you consider a gift to provide Room Sponsorship through an annual donation of $5000 per year? Your generosity to this program directly affects the lives of the families who call our House “home” while their child receives medical treatment. Room Sponsorship at our House is a win-win partnership. It genuinely assists families in need while providing marketing benefits for donors.

RMHA allows parents to be close by their sick child, surrounded by a warm, peaceful and comforting atmosphere that strengthens them during trying times. Please contact Aristea Tzouloufis at 330.253.5400 or to discuss this opportunity further.
