Become a Community Partner
Play a key role in helping families stay together
Ronald McDonald House Charities® Oklahoma City is able to change the lives of children and their families because of the generosity of Community Partners. Companies and organizations are an important part of helping RMHC-OKC deliver comfort and care to children and their families whether it’s through monetary gifts, in-kind donations or volunteering.
Share Your Treasure
Supporting RMHC-OKC can help local companies reach a target audience, build brand awareness and motivate employees while supporting your community.
- RMHC-OKC hosts multiple fundraising events each year, a Pickle Ball Tournament in March, Walk for Kids in June and the Red Shoe Rendezvous in September. We also hold three Cooking Together events throughout the year as well as a Giver and Gamers event in October, with a variety of sponsorship opportunities available. For information about becoming a sponsor of any of our events please contact us at (405) 424-6873 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- We understand that not all companies are interested in participating in special events but would still like to give back to the community. Help us help more families with a gift that benefits families directly. Share-a-Night by sponsoring a night, week, month, or even a year-long stay for a family.
- Provide your employees with the opportunity to double the impact of their donation by matching their gift.
Share Your Time
Many companies provide funds for hours volunteered by staff. As a highly rewarding way to support RMHC-OKC, funding volunteer hours achieves your philanthropic goals as well as inspires philanthropy among your employees. Employees can share their time in a variety of ways and many opportunities are great for groups.

- Employees and customers enjoy fulfilling a Wish List Drive to help keep our Houses well-provisioned for guest families.
