Setting up a scheduled, monthly gift ensures RMHC Maine has the stability to continue providing care to the families who need our services. RMHC Maine can host up to 50 families per night between our two Ronald McDonald House programs in Bangor and Portland and provides a home away from home 365 per year. A monthly donation allows us to better predict our future plans which leads to a better overall organization. Meet the League below and decide where you want to make an impact.
$10 Monthly Donation
While we kindly ask for a $10 per night donation, no family is ever turned away for not being able to contribute towards their stay. In fact, roughly 75% of families are provided housing for free.
By giving $10 a month you help to close that gap and cover a one-night stay for a family each month.
RMHC Maine ensures that every person staying with us has a meal ready for dinner (not to mention a stocked pantry). Whether this be a delicious meal prepared by a volunteer or local take-out, we have made it our mission to care for the families that stay with us like they are our own.
Donating $25 will cover one meal for a family once a month.
$75 Monthly Donation
Just like any other home, the Houses need a lot of care to maintain a clean, comfortable space for our families. Thankfully, we have an amazing team of volunteers who help clean the Houses from top to bottom every day! But with dozen rooms, common rooms, a plethora of bathrooms, and so many floors, it takes a lot of cleaning products and household items!
A donation of $75 will help cover cleaning supplies and household items for one month.
Many families who stay with us, deal with the reality that they simply won’t know how long they will be with us.
Some only stay for a day or two, others stay months.
On average, families stay with us for 12 nights.
A $120 monthly donation would cover the average length of stay for a family.
