About Us - Statewide Leaders

Riley is Indiana's children's hospital, serving children from every single county across the state, and far beyond our borders. Riley Children's Foundation is grateful to have a committed team of regional leaders who spread awareness about Riley in their home communities.

Riley Regional Advisory Council Members support Riley Children’s Foundation’s mission and vision. 

  • Mission: We raise funds statewide and steward Foundation assets for the kids. 
  • Vision: To ensure children have access to exceptional healthcare by funding pediatric research, education and care. 

These community leaders help create awareness about Riley Hospital and aid Riley Children's Foundation in their fundraising efforts in the following ways:

  • Advocate: Share your Riley story or knowledge about Riley at events, organization meetings and with media.
  • Lead by Example: State leaders are encouraged to give to Riley annually.
  • Identify, Cultivate, Solicit and Steward: Identify potential Riley donors, help engage them and thank them for their gifts.
  • Awareness: Introduce Riley Children's Foundation staff to schools, companies and key stakeholders in the community.
