Riley Children’s Foundation is the fundraising arm of Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health and the founding organization that opened Riley Hospital in 1924. Today Riley Hospital is recognized as one of the best children’s hospitals in the nation. Riley Children’s Foundation also supports Camp Riley and the James Whitcomb Riley Museum Home.      

When you give, children heal

Every gift makes an impact. The dedicated team at Riley Hospital could not deliver expert family-centered care and breakthrough pediatric research without extensive donor support. Gifts from partners like you help sustain critical Riley Hospital programs such as:

  • Pediatric Research
  • Child Life and Creative Arts Therapies
  • Social Work (including emergency financial support for families)
  • Clinical programs that require additional funding

Everyone has the power to make a difference for Riley Hospital, from school children to corporate partners to Riley families and friends. 

Because of you, hope happens here.

Vision

To ensure children have access to exceptional healthcare by funding pediatric research, education and care.

Mission

We raise funds statewide and steward Foundation assets for the kids.

Our KIDS Core Values and 7 Habits are at the heart of our culture. The Riley Way defines how we interact and how we achieve our results. Living these values and habits will build a culture of trust, respect, kindness and collaboration.
