The Ronald McDonald House is growing for A Million Reasons

Help us provide even more nights of rest

Since 1982, the Ronald McDonald House in Columbus, Ohio has provided one million nights of rest for families of seriously ill, hospitalized children. In order to serve even more families at the House, RMHC of Central Ohio has embarked on the largest expansion project in our history – a transformational campaign to provide a million more nights of rest for families when they need it most.

Rendering of planned expansion

This project will include:

• An additional 80 guest rooms to accommodate more families
• New community rooms, expanded kitchen and dining, and green space for families
• Necessary renovations to the existing structure


With the expansion RMHC will be equipped to serve an additional 2,000 families each year, increasing the families served annually to 6,500. Without the services RMHC provides, the families who rely on RMHC for housing and food will be forced to pay an average of $100 a night for local accommodations as well as an average of $20 per person, per day, to feed three meals. Therefore, the total annual savings to families after the expansion will be approximately $14,200,000.

Make your mark by buying a paver

By purchasing a paver, you are providing families at the Ronald McDonald House with not only nights of rest, but warm meals, and a sense of hope during these difficult times. This is a special opportunity to support families and become a part of the House. Each engraved paver is a wonderful way to showcase your family, memorialize a loved one, celebrate a life event, or recognize your employees. Together, we will pave the way for families of seriously ill children.
