Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of Eastern New England
Grants to Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire nonprofit organizations to promote the health and wellbeing of children within the funding source's service area. Priority will be given to direct service projects. Programs must provide meaningful critical health services to children in need.

To accomplish this mission we support the Ronald McDonald Houses of Boston, Massachusetts and Providence, Rhode Island, Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles in Providence & Worcester, Ronald McDonald Family Rooms in local hospitals and make grants to programs which help children and their families focusing on other nonprofit organizations that align with RMHC Core Programs focusing on critical health care.
