Generous and creative friends of Riley raise important funds for Riley Children’s Foundation – the fundraising arm of Riley Hospital for Children. Your efforts help raise money to give hope to sick and injured children while helping Riley researchers discover better treatments and cures.

You can host an event, set-up an online fundraising page, join a Team Riley event, or join along with an already existing event.

If you are considering hosting an event for Riley, we encourage you to carefully look over our third-party policies and guidelines, and frequently asked questions, before submitting your online event application. You may also want to create your own fundraising page to maximize your results.

Team Riley is a program that allows you to run, walk or bike in any athletic event and raise funds for Riley. Learn about existing Team Riley opportunities, or set up your own personal fundraising page to use while you participate in an event of your choice.   

You can also join or attend an already planned event by checking out our events calendar to see what Riley events are taking place in your area.

Riley Fundraising ideas:                                                                                    

  • Host a golf outing or sports tournament
  • Host a silent, live or online auction
  • Involve your kids in a car wash, bake sale, lemonade stand or talent show
  • Hold a Riley-themed party to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion, such as weddings (make donations to Riley in lieu of wedding favors, or ask your wedding guests to make a gift to Riley in lieu of wedding gifts).

Once your donations are collected, you can simply make the gift here on our website, or mail a check to: Riley Children’s Foundation, 30 S. Meridian St., Suite 200, Indianapolis, IN, 46204

For more information about hosting an event to raise money for Riley or joining Team Riley, please contact Donna Fischer, Special Projects Coordinator, DFischer@RileyKids.org
