Sparks Society

The Sparks Society is Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Michiana’s opportunity to honor individuals who have joined us in mission to care for families of sick and injured children ages 21 and younger. The Sparks Society was created to recognize our founders, Kathleen and David Sparks, and their 20 years of commitment to support families and help alleviate the isolation and stress they feel when a child is sick or injured.

You can help continue the Sparks’ legacy and help keep Michiana families close at a time when they need it the most.

Members of the Sparks Society provide critical support for RMHC Michiana’s services. These individuals play an integral role in all that we do to provide families with a haven of certainty, a home away from home. With an annual gift of $2,002 or more, Sparks Society members ensure that RMHC Michiana can continue to provide our programs at no cost to families.

Sparks Society members understand that the House cannot be a home-away-from-home for our families, without general operating support. Sparks Society members provide the necessary funds to ensure the house will always have:

  • A refrigerator full of staples (milk, eggs, bread, and butter)
  • Laundry supplies (detergent, dryer sheets, baskets)
  • An inviting space to rest and recharge

The purpose of this leadership giving society is to encourage donors to support our mission through unrestricted gifts. General operating support is vital, and we will create giving levels that will SPARK care, comfort, compassion, and community. Each level will positively impact the families we serve by providing the necessary funds to truly make our House a home-away-from-home.

Sparks Society members can give monthly and become a House Hero. For instance, a gift of $167/month will qualify them as a member of Sparks Society.

You can view the giving levels below, then contact for more information. We cannot thank you enough for supporting our mission and being a part of our generous community!
