Supporting People and Communities in Times of Need

At McDonald’s, our purpose is to feed and foster communities. We’re consistently inspired by the way people and our system come together in ways big and small to support their communities. See below for ways you can help contribute to the needs of people and communities in which we serve.

Employee Assistance

Donations will be distributed among employees who have been impacted by natural disasters and hardships. Employees may use these funds to address their specific, and individual, needs. Anticipated needs include:

  • Evacuation – Costs associated with providing food, clothing transportation, and shelter
  • Long Term – Expenses associated with housing repairs, content replacement, medical and other recovery services


McDonald’s Community Fund

McDonald’s is prioritizing our role and commitments in the tens of thousands of communities we operate in. We’re also speaking up about our impact on the communities we have been serving for more than 75 years, and how we plan to feed and foster the future of those communities over the next 75 years.  How can McDonald’s make the biggest difference? As we look to the future, we believe we can have an even greater impact by focusing on four areas that matter to our communities:

  • Food Quality & Sourcing
  • Our Planet
  • Community Connection
  • Jobs, Inclusion, & Empowerment

Your donation can help our efforts make the most impact in these areas.


If you would like to donate via bank ACH transfer or wire, please email McDonald’s at to obtain instructions on how to do this.
