Help us help even more families in need

How You Can Help

The families that stay at the Ronald McDonald House are facing emotional exhaustion, stress, and the mounting financial burden of their situation. Please know that your donation brings light to the dark times these families are facing, often resulting in tears of gratitude for your support. To make a cash donation, click the donate button, or learn about other ways to donate here.

You Make Healing Possible

About 90% of the families who stay with RMHC are not in a position to make a financial donation toward their stay. The charity depends almost entirely on generous public and private donations to make our services available.

Thank you to all of those who have so generously donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Dakota, including those who have donated pop tabs, quilts, stuffed animals and baked goods. Every gift, large or small, lightens someone’s burden at the Ronald McDonald House.
