Endowment gifts provide a permanent investment in Ronald McDonald House Charities of NM’s future. An endowment sustains program excellence by ensuring a continuous source of funding for the Family Program and strategic plans for growth meeting the future needs of our medical community of families with ill children. From major gifts that support operations to targeted gifts that support a staff position in a specialized field, each endowment fund enriches the organization and the lives of our families.
When endowment gifts are received, the principal is held in perpetuity, with part of the annual earnings generating ongoing support for House activities designated by the donor. Although gifts, costs and fundraising revenue might fluctuate annually, the stability of an endowment ensures crucial strategic planning and program expansion stays on target. The Board Investment Committee of professional volunteers oversees policies and investments. Their goal is balancing asset diversity to maintain purchasing power over time and overcome inflation in higher program costs.
Named funds not only make a lasting impact at the House, but also offer the opportunity to honor your family’s commitment to Ronald McDonald House Charities of NM or pay tribute to a loved one. Endowments can be established through contributions of cash, stock, charitable remainder trusts, bequests or other assets. Pledged payments, normally on a five-year timeline, are welcome.

Securing the Future Brick by Brick
Help build our Endowment Fund by purchasing a engraved brick for our House courtyard. The bricks are installed in this beautiful space annually. Engraved bricks can honor a family member or friend or be a memorial for a loved one. They are also a nice way to celebrate birthdays, graduations, holiday and more.
For $100 you can purchase a brick. Every November we host a bricklaying ceremony. You and your guests come and participate with others sharing in the event. Each brick can have up to 3 lines with 12 characters per line.
