Day of Change

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Indiana, Inc.


October 15th is the anniversary of the opening of the very first Ronald McDonald House. We commemorate this special day with a GLOBAL one-day fundraising challenge called Day of Change. You’re invited to be a Day of Change Fundraising Champion and by encouraging your friends, family members and co-workers to donate through your own custom fundraising page. Your efforts create a huge impact for the thousands of children and families that call our House “home”.
You don’t have to be an expert fundraiser to make a huge impact. Every dollar counts:
A $25 donation can cover the costs of arts and crafts supplies for a week. You’ll help families get a break from the stress of the hospital by providing a family game, or activity night.
$50 covers the costs of milk and snacks for a week. You will ensure families always have milk for a bowl of cereal in the morning, coffee for the long day ahead, and a snack to get them through the afternoon.
By raising $75, you’ll help cover the costs of bedding supplies for a week. That’s new pillows, linens and bedding so our families can have a clean, comfortable room to return to at the end of a long day.
When you raise $100, you’re giving the gift of togetherness. It costs $100 a night to operate a room at Ronald McDonald House. While families are encouraged to donate $15 a night, no family is ever turned away for their inability to pay.
