About Ronald McDonald House Hamilton:
Ronald McDonald House Hamilton (RMHH), formally known as Kids Care Oncology Central West Ontario, is designed to provide a home away from home for sick children and their families, primarily for Kitchener/Waterloo, Niagara and Haldimand counties, near Hamilton, Ontario. RMHH is one of 14 Ronald McDonald houses across Canada helping the families of children diagnosed with serious illness or injury when they must travel for their child's treatment.
RMHH was built in 1993 as a 15-bedroom house next to McMaster Children’s Hospital. In 2012 the house was expanded to 40 bedrooms. RMHH also operates a Ronald McDonald Family Room, located in the McMaster Children’s Hospital, that provides a comfortable environment for families when they cannot leave the hospital, plus it provides laundry, computer and kitchenette facilities.
RMHH charges a minimal per-night fee to stay at the house; however, no family is turned away due to their inability to pay. Fees charged in F2014 cover only 10% of total program and administrative costs of the house. McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada and Ronald McDonald House Charities of Canada (RMHC) provide in-kind and financial donations raised through events, suppliers, coin boxes and McHappy Day events. RMHC grants accounted for 13% of RMHH’s budget and no disclosure is provided on donations from McDonald’s.
In F2014, administrative costs were 7% of revenues and fundraising costs were 25% of donations (including $780k in deferred revenue and excluding grants from Ronald McDonald House Charities of $231k). Total funding reserves of $454k cover 39% of annual program costs. Excluding the remaining $801k in its line of credit, the program cost coverage is 1.1 times.
