05_WaysToGive_NameOpportunities

When you establish a named fund or make a significant gift to Riley Children’s Foundation, you create a legacy of hope and healing

This type of leadership-level funding is especially critical right now, since Riley is broadening its reach to provide the state’s highest level of pediatric care to even more children. 

Thank you for considering these opportunities to leave your permanent mark on Riley Hospital. We look forward to showing you how your gifts will make a difference for kids at Riley Hospital.

Named Funds

Establishing a named fund at Riley Children’s Foundation gives you the chance to create a meaningful source of support for a Riley program close to your heart. You and others can make additional gifts to these funds at any time.

  • Current Use Funds
    With a gift of $10,000 or more, you may establish a fund in your name or in the name of a child, caregiver or friend you wish to honor. Your donation is made available immediately to the designated fund director, who may choose to use the funds all at once, or over time. 
  • Endowment Funds
    Your gift of $100,000 or more can be used to establish an endowment, which becomes an asset held in perpetuity by Riley Children’s Foundation. An endowment fund is different from a current use fund in that your gift is not immediately disbursed. Interest generated from your investment creates a steady stream of funding for the program of your choice. 

Naming Opportunities 

When you make a gift of $100,000 or more to Riley, you have the option of naming a space at Riley Hospital. From patient rooms, to treatment areas to play rooms, Riley has naming opportunities to fit many levels of leadership gifts.

If you are interested in more information about naming a space or setting up a named fund at Riley Hospital, please call Assistant Vice President, Planned Giving, Kate Brinkerhoff at (317) 446-6580 or email her at kbrinkerhoff@rileykids.org.
