Since opening in 1996, the Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House has provided comfort, care, and support to children and families in Southern California. With the growth of the Inland Empire and the Loma Linda University Hospital, the Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House sought to expand to meet ever-increasing demand for services. Over the course of a year, CCS partnered with Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House to help raise $12 million to more than double the House’s capacity.
After more than a decade of planning, Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House partnered with CCS to oversee all aspects of the campaign. Initially, CCS focused on developing the campaign plan, recruiting and training leadership, building the prospect list, developing cultivation and solicitation strategies, finalizing the case for support, and creating materials. As the campaign unfolded, CCS continued to play a vital role in driving activity, providing ongoing strategy, staffing executive and volunteer leadership, and overseeing all back office campaign functions.
The campaign was a success, and the House re-opened in September 2016. Now, 7,500 individuals per year will be able to call the Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House home.
