At its International Convention in August, Ronald McDonald House Charities recognized ACN as one of the organization’s three Signature Partners. The designation of Signature Partner indicates those whose annual donations total between $500,000 and $1 million.
ACN’s giving stems from its International Training Events, where the company collects donations to fund ACN Reach, its global charity organization. Ronald McDonald House, which operates chapters in 51 countries worldwide, is the official global charity of ACN. At the close of each event, ACN matches the collected donations dollar for dollar and presents the total to the local Ronald McDonald House chapter.
ACN previously made it a company mission to bring a Ronald McDonald House to the home of its corporate headquarters—Charlotte, N.C. The Charlotte house opened in 2011, thanks to ACN’s key sponsorship and $2 million pledge toward ensuring future sustainability.
“At ACN, helping children is very close to our hearts, so it’s an honor to work with an organization whose purpose is to provide families with the care and support they need during their darkest hours. It’s a humbling experience,” said ACN Chairman and Co-Founder Robert Stevanovski.
