A man reads a book to two children

In 2018, the Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham provided 1,699 family stays for 897 families, many of whom traveled to Birmingham more than once to seek medical care for their child. In the same year, guest families came from 66 counties in Alabama, 15 other U.S. states and 1 other country. Your donation of $1,375 will support a family for 11 nights (the average length of stay).

Why your generous donation is so important

Family Contribution: $10 | Average length of stay: 11 nights What you provide for families
  • The actual cost to provide our special brand of hospitality for families is approximately $125 per night. However, 50% of families can’t afford even the suggested $10 contribution due to the enormous financial strain they find themselves in during this stressful time.
  • And that $125 doesn’t even include the cost of meals and incidentals that RMHCA helps cover for families. Our services saves a family of four $360 a night. That adds up to more than $6 million in savings for families each year.
