Ronald Township is a civil township of Ionia County in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 1,903 at the 2000 census.

Ronald Township was formed in 1845 from parts of Lyons and Ionia townships, and given its name by state representative A. L. Roof, who said he was inspired by the lead character in a novel he was reading at the time. (This may have been Sir Walter Scott's narrative poem The Lord of the Isles, in which the protagonist is named Ronald.)

In the traditional township numbering for the State of Michigan, Ronald Township is T 8 N, R 6 W.
