The 2016 Home Away from Home Appeal is an annual giving program that provides the financial foundation for the yearly operation of our three Ronald McDonald Houses and Ronald McDonald Family Rooms. Click here to make your gift today.

The cost for one family's stay at the Ronald McDonald House is $76 per night. However, RMHC St. Louis asks families to contribute just a fraction of that amount, and no family is turned away based on ability to pay. In fact, this suggested fee is waived approximately 50% of the time to ease the financial stress caused by mounting medical bills. Your donation to the Home Away from Home Appeal directly benefits seriously ill children and their families, keeping them close when they need it most.

If you prefer to contribute by cash or check, or if you have any questions about this important initiative, please call 314-932-4146 or email


In order to meet our financial needs and recognize our most generous donors, we have established the Cornerstone Society. Those who make a donation of $1,000 this year - or increase their 2016 gift total to $1,000 - will become members of the Cornerstone Society. To make a secure donation online, click here.
