Every year our chapters and alumnae associations raise more money than before to support Ronald McDonald House Charities, but we cannot reach every house. In fact, we only reach about a third of all RMHC houses worldwide.
We saw a need, and we knew just what we needed to do.
Janet Foltz Larson, Alpha Eta—Kansas State University, established the Ronald McDonald House Charities Endowment as part of the We Believe…Campaign for Alpha Delta Pi because of her love for Alpha Delta Pi and Ronald McDonald House Charities. She wanted to ensure Alpha Delta Pi had a permanent relationship with an organization she deeply cared for and the RMHC Endowment was soon underway!
WHAT IS IT?
The RMHC Endowment will be a permanent fund set up and managed by The Alpha Delta Pi Foundation. Our goal is to raise $1,000,000 by June 2018.
WHO CAN APPLY?
Once we reach our $1,000,000 goal, ANY Ronald McDonald House worldwide will be able to apply for strategic grants to assist with building or renovation projects, addition of Family Rooms or Care Mobiles, and the creation of new RMHC programs and initiatives. This fund is especially important for those houses where there is not an ADPi chapter or Alumnae Association nearby to help provide financial, in-kind, and volunteer support.
HOW IS IT BEING FUNDED?
The fund is being established through the generous support of our chapters, alumnae associations, individuals, and friends of Alpha Delta Pi. We have asked chapters to host an additional philanthropy event or increase their current fundraising efforts and earmarking the surplus towards the RMHC Endowment – truly making it the RMHC Endowment Challenge.
YOU CAN HELP!
Help us spread the word to our sisters and friends around the globe. Even if you have not been inside a Ronald McDonald House since college, you can help create a permanent bond between ADPi and RMHC, simply by giving. We are 33% of the way to $1,000,000 so every donation helps get us closer to being able to support every house worldwide.
