The Dane G. Hansen Foundation
The Adopt A Room program was established by the Charles and JoAnne McIlwaine Foundation when they offered a matching grant aimed at challenging other businesses and foundations to support Wichita's Ronald McDonald Houses. Actively involved with RMHC Wichita, the McIlwaines saw the difference the Ronald McDonald House had on the lives of the families staying there. Since then, hundreds of companies and foundations have accepted the McIlwaine Foundation's challenge and contributed more than $1 million to support our Ronald McDonald House program.
