In 2017 Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Michiana expanded our services from a Family Room format to a House. Beacon Children’s Hospital graciously provided space for us to expand our facility in the Skyway Building directly across the street from the hospital.
To fund the expansion and renovation project, the RMHC Board of Directors and staff have launched a $7,900,000 capital and endowment campaign entitled, “Love Shining Through”. Phase 1 of the Capital Campaign was a $2.9 million dollar campaign to cover the cost of the build out. We celebrated fulfilling Phase 1 of the Campaign in June of 2017.
Today, we embark on a new goal, Phase 2 of the Love Shining Through Capital Campaign! With the new house complete, we shift our focus to the perpetuity of RMHC® of Michiana through a $5 million dollar endowment fund. Establishing an endowment will offer a safeguard for the future of the charity—ensuring that as more families are sent for critical care at Beacon Children’s Hospital, none will go without the rest, replenishment and support they need.
