Gold Key Project

Gold Key Project Goal Tracker

In 2020, ReeceNichols and Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of Kansas City created the Gold Key Project to raise money for families with sick children. RMHC reduces the burden of childhood illness on families by providing a convenient place to stay while their child receives critical medical care. ReeceNichols Gold Key Agents donate $100 – enough for one night’s stay at RMHC – for every home they help buy or sell from April through October, while Prosperity Home Mortgage lenders cover the cost of food for a family with every mortgage closed.

Since the pilot program's launch, ReeceNichols has donated more than $600,000 to RMHC of Kansas City, the Ozarks, the Four States, and Wichita – enough for more than 5,000 free nights for families to be near their sick children. That includes a $50,000 donation in 2021 to help create the newest RMHC-KC Family Room at Overland Park Regional Medical Center and $50,000 in 2022 to renovate four rooms at RMHC-KC’s Longfellow House.

As part of this groundbreaking new program, our ReeceNichols agents work tirelessly to find the perfect home for you. Each home purchased or sold with a Gold Key Agent allows a family with a hospitalized child to stay one night at a Ronald McDonald House Charities. So when you and your agent close on your forever home, you help a local family.

Why ReeceNichols + Ronald McDonald House Charities?

Since 1905, ReeceNichols has been dedicated to finding the perfect homes for families throughout Kansas and Missouri. The homebuying and selling process requires a thorough understanding of client needs, and ReeceNichols agents use their unique blend of expertise, loyalty and motivation to foster strong relationships and create success for the families they serve.

RMHC-KC was founded in 1981. Its mission is to reduce the burden of childhood illness on children and their families. When a sick child undergoes treatment at a Kansas City hospital, RMHC-KC provides their families with comfort and convenience in the form of housing and resources – allowing them to stay close to their kids while they receive medical care.

In 2021, ReeceNichols expanded the Gold Key Project to include four local Ronald McDonald House Charities. Our shared values and commitment to finding families homes makes for the perfect partnership, bringing hearts and homes together for a greater purpose. ReeceNichols and RMHC hope to make an even greater difference in our communities.

Meet Teddy

Theodore James Richter was born on 2/2/22 at 2:22pm at Overland Park Regional Medical Center. Teddy was born at 35 weeks and has Down’s Syndrome, so he needed some respiratory support and glucose through an IV when he was first born in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). After that, he stayed in the NICU to learn to feed and grow with his parents right by his side at the newest Ronald McDonald Family Room inside Overland Park Regional Medical Center! The 2021 Gold Key Project helped make this space a reality for families with children in the pediatric and neonatal intensive care units in OPRMC.

Jessica, Teddy's mom said, "We were so grateful to be able to stay at the RMH as we have been working on breastfeeding and it made it possible for me to do night feeds with him... Thank you for making this place happen."
