McDonald’s commitment to social responsibility dates back to our founder, Ray Kroc. Forty-nine years ago, long before the term “social responsibility” surfaced, Ray Kroc understood how important it was to give back to the community. It’s part of our DNA. Supporting charitable activities addressing diabetes, arthritis, multiple sclerosis and chemical dependency, Ray Kroc provided our first model for McDonald’s outreach.

We are proud to be a part of the communities we serve. Through involvement in youth sports, local charities, and events that inspire the world, giving back is an essential part of the way we operate every day.

Enriching Our Communities, Bettering Our Planet
We can all tell our Good Neighbor stories – because we’ve always taken actions to make our communities stronger and the world a better place.

Enriching Communities
We’re championing healthier and happier kids and stronger communities through the Ronald McDonald House Charities®, sponsoring athletic teams, community volunteerism and teacher appreciation nights.

Bettering Our Planet
We are making progress around preserving the environment by using less energy, seeking sustainability food sources and reducing waste.
