Ronald McDonald House

Stepping Stone School Supports the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Austin and Central Texas, a nonprofit organization that creates, finds and supports programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families.


Rhonda Paver, MA, Executive Director of Stepping Stone School said, “Stepping Stone School has been proud to partner with RMHC CTX for seven years and we strongly support the fine work done by this organization on behalf of the children and families of Central Texas.


Our Young Entrepreneurs and Philanthropists™ program has successfully increased the amount of funds raised each year by our school age children, while also teaching them the valuable lessons of kindness, caring, gratitude and giving to others.”
