Ronald McDonald House Perth has successfully raised $22 million towards its capital campaign to build a new house, reveals Greg Johnson.
Ronald McDonald House Perth has largely completed a capital campaign to build a new house in just 12 months. The campaign to raise $22 million towards the $29 million build project came after the West Australian Government announced the construction of a new children’s hospital.
“It has been a pleasure to lead this fundraising campaign. I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of generosity from the Western Australian community,” explained campaign chairman Peter Meurs. “I am very proud that we are able to move forward on time to make this project a reality and to open the doors of the new house alongside the new children’s hospital by the end of 2015.”
The campaign’s director, Xponential Philanthropy’s Natalie Campion, praised the work of those involved in the ‘Stronger Together’ campaign.
“We have been very fortunate to have a dedicated group of philanthropic Western Australians who have worked hard to advocate and help Ronald McDonald House Perth raise over $22 million so far,” explained Campion.
