RMHC Endowment

As part of the We Believe Campaign, a Ronald McDonald House Charities® Endowment has been established at the Alpha Delta Pi Foundation. This fund will allow any Ronald McDonald House® throughout the world to apply directly for grants from the Alpha Delta Pi Foundation, allowing us to provide support for:

  • Houses that do not have an ADPi chapter or alumnae association nearby supporting them
  • New Houses being built
  • Existing Houses being renovated
  • Family Rooms that are being expanded and renovated


Alpha Delta Pi supports approximately 40% of local RMHC® Chapters worldwide, leaving significant room to grow our support.
