McDonald was a member of the Seattle Free Lances, and the Authors League of America. She helped found the Pacific Northwest Writers Conference and served as moderator for the panel on juvenile literature in 1966. She was also a member of Theta Sigma Phi's National Executive Board and the New York Newspaperwoman's Club. Except for three years absence, she lived in Washington since 1932.
