Riley Red Wagon Naming

Riley Red Wagon

The Riley red wagon represents the family-centered care provided at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health. Red wagons help families navigate Riley Hospital, and bring children smiles during what can be a stressful time.

With your philanthropic support, you or your group can name a wagon. A license plate acknowledging your contribution will be attached to the back of a wagon and you will receive a duplicate copy of the plate. Wagons are named for the duration of their circulation at the hospital, up to one year. Based on inventory, named wagons may be new or gently used.

Funds from named wagons are used to support Riley Hospital’s greatest needs. Upon request, a donor can direct funds to patient care, pediatric research or family support programs such as Child Life. A portion of each donation ($200) provides maintenance for wagons.

Wagon naming opportunities and pricing

$1,924
Personal contribution from an individual or individuals
Contribution from a Kids Caring and Sharing school 

$4,000
Contribution from a community service organization (e.g., church, service club, Greek organization)

Contribution from a corporation or special fundraising event (e.g., golf outing)

A limited number of wagons are available. To name a wagon, please call 317.634.4474 or email Margo Ives at MIves@RileyKids.org

License plate design

  • No more than three lines (maximum 40 characters per line)
  • Graphics can be included (school/business logo with permission; no personal photos)
  • Riley Children’s Foundation reserves the right to change/edit plate language for any existing or former wagson
  • Note: Due to space limitations only one wagon will be named/plated per gift and/or donor

Wagon release

  • Donors have the opportunity to release the wagon into fleet
  • Wagon releases occur approximately four weeks after donation receipt and plate approval
  • Once a wagon is released, it is a piece of medical equipment at Riley Hospital and Riley Children’s Foundation cannot accommodate requests to locate 

Individual Donations less than $1,000

If you are not ready to make a donation at the Riley Society level, you can donate in any amount HERE. Every single donation to Riley Hospital for Children – large or small – is a gift of hope.
