McDonald’s in Your Community

The Golden Arches has a longstanding commitment to community and there are many ways in which San Diego County McDonald’s restaurants strive to make their neighborhoods a better place to live and work. In addition to Ronald McDonald appearances teaching valuable messages on reading, good character and more, McDonald’s also hosts fundraisers for local schools and scholarships for high school seniors.

McTeacher’s® Night Fundraisers

Need to put more fun in your school fundraiser? Ask your local McDonald’s franchisee or restaurant manager about McTeacher’s Night, which invites teachers and principals to go behind the counter at McDonald’s to earn a percentage of the profits for their school. No fliers or coupons are necessary to earn support for the school – every McDonald’s order filled during the fundraising time frame counts toward your fundraising goals. During the school staff’s short but exciting time as part of the McDonald’s team, you can promote the occasion to students, faculty, families and more to make sure your fundraising event is a success! Talk to your local restaurant’s store manager to learn more about McTeacher’s Night fundraisers.

Ronald McDonald House Charities/HACER® Scholarship

The Ronald McDonald House Charities®/Hispanic American Commitment to Education Resources (HACER) Scholarship is an opportunity for select high school seniors to earn support for their college career. San Diego County students who show academic excellence, demonstrate financial need, have at least one parent of Hispanic descent, and who wish to further their education at a two- or four-year college should check back in January 2015 to learn about upcoming scholarship opportunities.
