What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Florida meets the constant demand from families of hospitalized or seriously ill children for a convenient and affordable place to stay that is close to emergency care, medical treatment, and health care specialists. Because of its regional medical facilities, thousands of people along the Gulf Coast travel to Pensacola for medical assistance. They are seeking specialized medical treatment for their children that is not offered in their local communities.

Firecracker 5K

Held every year around the 4th of July, Ronald McDonald House Charities’ Firecracker 5K is a Gulf Coast favorite. The run, walk, wheelchair race always starts at Seville Quarter and winds through Downtown Pensacola. The tiniest athletes are invited to join the “Rock the Socks” Kid’s Fun Run immediately after the start of the race. The after party features free refreshments, race awards, and prizes.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
