Gift in Kind Officer

Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC) Alberta is passionate about providing a home away from home for families with seriously ill or injured children who must travel for medical care.

We know that a family with a sick child is a sick family. Our Ronald McDonald Houses provide a warm, compassionate, and comfortable environment where families can share experiences, receive respite and distraction, eat a warm homemade meal and rest, all while caring for their child at the hospital next door.

RMHC Alberta is part of a global network of Houses, Family Rooms, Care Mobiles and Comfort Carts prioritizing family-centered care through delivery of our unique core programs. RMHC Alberta operates four Houses offering 87 private family suites, and three Comfort Carts that deliver bedside services in hospital.

We’re currently engaged in a multi-year, $80M capital campaign to reduce the service gap by tripling our capacity in Calgary and Edmonton. Construction on an expanded facility in Calgary is currently underway and scheduled for completion in 2025.
