Funding Forecast: ‘Golden Arches’ Campaign to Start

The reliable Ronald McDonald House Charities will open its Global Grants competition later this year that supports effort to help needy and disadvantaged children.

Geographic Focus: National; Eligibility: Nonprofits (work can address the needs of children either in the U.S. or internationally); Funding: Varies, multiple awards (grants up to $5 million have been made in the past).

Deadline: The next round of funding is to open in July, last year’s deadline was Aug. 23.

Funder seeks projects that improve the health and well-being of children. Nonprofit organizations seeking funding should have a specific program that directly improves the health and well-being of children or addresses a significant gap. Applicants must include a sustainable train-the-trainer approach to their methodology and demonstrate quantifiable outcomes as they increase access to care for children. RMHC takes a holistic, family-centered approach to bridging access to care and is interested in partnering with organizations that have a similar philosophy.

RMHC will consider pilot projects provided that the organization operating them has demonstrated success in these outcome areas. And, the group wants partners and projects that will have an extensive, sustainable impact on children.

Other Funding

McDonald’s also sponsors scholarships for students in financial need who have demonstrated academic achievement, leadership and community involvement. Since 1985, more than $48 million in scholarships have been awarded. That opportunity opens in the fall.
