Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House, noted by Wikipedia as "the first of the Ronald McDonald House Charities", gives the following descriptive information:
The Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House supports families of seriously ill children by creating a community of comfort and hope.

Our programs include two Ronald McDonald Houses, two Ronald McDonald Family Rooms at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, a Hospitality Kiosk at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, and a Ronald McDonald Camp.

90% of our funding comes from individuals and corporate donors, and the remaining 10% is provided by Ronald McDonald House Charities. While it costs the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House over $100 a night per family to provide housing and supportive services, families are only asked to contribute $15 per night. No one is ever turned away due to inability to pay.
