Ways to Donate
Thank you for your support!
Your donations do everything from putting a roof over parents’ heads while their child is receiving care, to diagnosing scoliosis in a young girl without access to health care. To make a cash donation click here.
Often individuals will share gifts in memory of someone special. Within the donation page, you are able to specify who your gift is in memory or honor of. If we have their contact information we will notify them of your gift. Your gift will also be shared in our annual memorial newsletter. To donate in memory of or in honor of someone, click here.
Double or even triple your donation to help more children! Many companies match charitable donations given by employees.
Donate A Vehicle
Get rid of your old car, truck, boat or RV while helping families in need.
The process of donating your vehicle is simple and quick, but the benefits last a long time. You’ll help children and families in need and also get rid of that old vehicle; you may even qualify for a tax deduction.
Meals from the Heart
Local groups such as companies, church organizations, and social clubs can come to the Ronald McDonald House to prepare home-cooked meals for the families staying at the House.
Volunteers make all the difference in the lives of the families that come through our doors. You can lend a hand by assisting the house staff and families with cleaning, organizing, vacuuming, and laundry or help with general maintenance.
Pop Tabs Program
Collect pop tabs from aluminum cans at work, home or local schools. Money earned from redeeming the tabs is donated to the charity and goes to support the annual operating budgets of Ronald McDonald Houses of South Dakota. To learn more visit our Pop Tabs Program page.

The Benefits of Being a Corporate Donor
We want to extend our reach around the world – increasing RMHC core programs 25% by 2015. We rely on financial contributions from our sponsors to achieve this goal.
Partners can create in-kind donation programs that are a tremendous opportunity to showcase products and services to people and organizations that need them most.
Your employees can have local volunteer opportunities in the communities where they live and work. Employee volunteers not only give your company greater exposure in the local community, your staff can also actively support a meaningful cause.
In a recent survey, 95% of people asked were aware of RMHC.
Ninety cents out of every dollar goes to expenditures directly supporting local Chapters and their programs, so your company investment in RMHC significantly improves your community.
