Tree of Life

“To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.” – Thomas Campbell

Visitors to Ronald McDonald House New York are greeted with a beautiful wall sculpture — the Tree of Life.

The Tree of Life is a vibrant symbol of the shelter, strength, and steadfast support that children and families find at Ronald McDonald House New York.

The tree also provides a meaningful way to honor or memorialize a loved one. In exchange for a gift of $2,500, the leaves of the tree can be engraved with a name and message.

With each new leaf, we can grow and sustain the House, and continue to offer hope and support to families that arrive today, tomorrow, and in years to come.


For more information about how you can honor a loved one by dedicating a leaf in his or her name, please contact Richard Martin, Director of Development, at 212.639.0206 or
