Riley Red Wagon Naming

Riley Red Wagon

Red wagons help families conveniently 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 the contribution will be attached to the back of a wagon. In addition, 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. 

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 services such as Child Life.

Wagon naming opportunities and pricing:

$1,924 (the year Riley Hospital opened its doors)

  • 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, Kiwanis club, Greek organization)

$5,000

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

License plate wording is typically no more than three lines with a maximum of 40 characters per line. A graphic, school logo, or business logo (with permission) can be included. Due to a limited number of wagons, only one wagon will be named and plated per donor and/or gift.

Donors have the opportunity to release the wagon into fleet. When a wagon has been released into circulation, it becomes a piece of medical equipment owned by Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health. Riley Children’s Foundation cannot accommodate requests to locate a wagon after it has been placed into circulation. Riley Children’s Foundation reserves the right to change or edit plate language for any existing or former wagons.

A limited number of wagons are available. To name a wagon, please call 317.634.4474 or email Margo Ives at MIves@RileyKids.org. Wagon releases occur approximately four weeks after donation receipt and license plate approval.

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.

Questions about any of our individual giving opportunities? Contact Cara Lathrop, Vice President, Development at CLathrop@RileyKids.org or 317.759.6906.
