Remember Ronald McDonald House Charities of Phoenix in your will and trusts.
Planned giving is vital to the long-term future of Ronald McDonald House. By remembering our House in your will or estate plans, you can help ensure that our “home away from home” will be here for generations to come. Through planned giving, you may be able to make a larger donation than you might have imagined – without sacrificing the security of your own family. There are many forms of planned gifts:
• A bequest in your will or living trust lets you take care of your loved ones first and also make an impact on the lives or our Ronald McDonald House families.
• Naming Ronald McDonald House as a beneficiary of your retirement plan allows you to share your generosity with our families and can help your heirs avoid double taxation.
• A gift through a life insurance policy transforms a modest investment on your part into a much greater benefit for both you and the families we serve.
You can designate your gift for support of a specific program or service; have it honor a loved one or designate it to our endowment fund.
If you would like to help ensure the future of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Phoenix, contact our Development and Marketing Director, Jerry Diaz, at 602-798-5092.
Gift in Honor or Memory
Send a donation in Honor or in Memory of a loved one. The Ronald McDonald House sends acknowledgements both to the donor and individual/family for which the tribute/memorial gift was made. The card specifies the occasion and names the donor but does not disclose the amount of the gift.
Parents staying at the House have many worries, not only about their child’s health, but also about the financial responsibilities associated with a serious illness. You can make a difference by participating in our Share-A-Night project by sponsoring a room for a night, a week, a month, or even a year. While families are asked to contribute a nominal fee of $15 per night, no one has ever been turned away because of financial hardships. Your gift will help ensure all families continue to find a “home away from home” at Ronald McDonald House of Phoenix when they face the challenge of caring for an ill or injured child.
$59 hosts a family for one night
$118 hosts a family for a weekend
$413 hosts a family for one week
$1,829 hosts a family for one month
