Thanks to generous people like you, we are able to support 35 families per night!
Honor a friend, family member or special occasion with a donation in their name. Your donation allows the House to ask the families pay only $10 per night, with no family turned away due to inability to pay, ever. Your donation can also be mailed to: 250 Brackett St. Portland, ME 04102
Gifts of eligible stocks/securities are welcomed and encouraged, and typically carry benefits not associated with gifts made by check, cash or credit card. Benefits include:
- 1. You avoid capital gains tax. Any gain is taxable if you sell stock or mutual
fund shares yourself, but not if you transfer ownership to the Ronald McDonald House.
- 2. Your charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes is based on the full fair market value
of the shares on the date the gift is made.
- 3. You receive credit from Ronald McDonald House for the full fair market value of the shares,
but the cost to you is only your original purchase price.
For detailed instructions, please have your broker notify the Executive Director at RMHC Maine, Robin Chibroski, prior to the transfer, at 207-780-6282 ext. 334.
Leave a legacy of the heart by donating a percentage of your estate to the Ronald McDonald House Portland.
Many corporations offer employee gift matches. Simply fill out the forms required by your corporation and send them to the House with your check. The House will complete the remainder of the paperwork and will work with your company to do the rest. What a wonderful gift to give twice as much to the families of the Ronald McDonald House.
