San Diego's Ronald McDonald House is operated by Ronald McDonald House Charities® of San Diego, which is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

In 1980, we opened the twentieth House in a network that has since grown to more than 320 Houses worldwide. While we are completely independent, we benefit from information and resources shared among Ronald McDonald Houses.

Ronald McDonald House Charities ("Global") is based in Oak Brook, Illinois. Their mission is to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well being of children.

They provide guidance to local groups who wish to establish a Ronald McDonald House program.They also share best practices among local chapters. 

In addition, Ronald McDonald House Charities works with national retailers to facilitate donations to local Ronald McDonald Houses. National partners include Coca-Cola, Tempur-Pedic, La-Z-Boy and Lumber Liquidators.


Ronald McDonald is the ambassador of Ronald McDonald House Charities. He brings good cheer to children of all ages, and he is a frequent visitor to San Diego's Ronald McDonald House. Be sure to say hello–he will be happy to see you!
