Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Iowa, Inc.


To the Des Moines Ronald McDonald House
First Giving Page.

The Des Moines Ronald McDonald House enriches the quality of life for children and their families in our local communities. We provide a place for families to stay while their child is being treated at a local hospital.

We are not medical professionals with treatment technologies, but friends who offer support. We are not a hospital or clinic, but a home, a place to rest and relax with peace of mind that your child is only minutes away. We ask our families for $10 a night. Many families facing financial hardship are unable to afford that fee. No family is ever turned away for their inability to pay. allows anyone to create their own online space to help the House raise funds to help us offset that cost.

So design your own page and help the House-that-love-built raise support for families facing childhood illness.  Register for an event and build a team to help you.  Donate to your friend's campaign or start your own!  On you site you can:
