Participate in a Third Party Event
Help us help families
RMHC of Nashville is honored to be the beneficiary of community events organized by individuals, civic groups, schools, and businesses. These fundraisers help us care for families while they focus on their seriously ill or injured children. If your family, school, or social group is interested in hosting a fundraising event to support the families that utilize Ronald McDonald House Charities of Nashville, we ask you to take a minute to complete the Fundraising Application. This application asks important questions about your event and what resources you may need from RMHC of Nashville. Contact email@example.com with any questions or with your completed application.
If you decide to host a fundraiser on our behalf, we are happy to help you in any way possible – from providing literature on our House and Family Room to assisting with the use of our logo.
The possibilities are endless: bake sales; dress down day at work; car wash; golf or other sports outing; or come up with your own unique idea! Together we can work toward a successful and rewarding experience for everyone involved. Interested? Click here to learn more!
