Our Federated Organisation
Ronald McDonald House Charities in Australia is made up of separate legal entities, including RMHC Australia and 11 RMHC Chapters. These Chapters operate around Australia under a federated structure and work together under a joint venture agreement. Each Chapter is financially and operationally independent, with their own Board and management. And each is a registered charity, regulated by the Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission.
