About Building on Love
Building on Love, a 501(c) 3 charitable organization, is dedicated to supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities chapters and the families they serve.
Often times, families quickly fall behind as they support their child, spending day and night bedside; as well as making lifestyle changes for their families. Building on Love has been able to provide financial support and amenities to families in order to make their transitions easier. Though many wonderful charities support these families and their sick child by providing access to medical care, there are no “safety nets” for the additional needs beyond medical bills. Building on Love offers a grant program where families can apply for support in the areas of transportation, groceries, gas cards, auto repairs, etc. In addition to financial support, Building on Love ensures families meet and adhere to the grant program guidelines set forth by the Board of Directors.
Building on Love, at times, provides direct financial support for the Ronald McDonald House programs. Priority is given to projects that enhance the quality of care provided to families at Ronald McDonald Houses and/or projects that expand the number of programs and/or services.
Building on Love is currently working with 12 houses to identify families in need of additional support. Future goals include expanding the number of houses that can be supported; as well as, providing funding for new programs to be offered at the Ronald McDonald Houses.
