$27b company McDonald's gives only about 10-20% on average to fund Ronald McDonald homes, and gives about 33% less to charity than similar-sized corporations.

"Pop quiz: Who do you think funds the hundreds of Ronald McDonald Houses around the nation? McDonald's, right? Sort of, but not really. While McDonald's gets 100 percent of the brand benefit from Ronald McDonald House Charities, the burger giant only provides about 20 percent of its funding globally. At the local level, it's closer to 10 percent, with some of that money coming from donation boxes at McDonald's outlets -- that is, from customers. Confused? Wondering how a corporation that raked in $27 billion last year can be so stingy with its own charity? You're not alone." -- Michele Simon, the Huffington Post
