New member classes are formed once a year and an informal coffee is held each February.

If you would like more information regarding membership, email WomenForRiley@rileykids.org and designate Membership in the subject line.

ACTIVE MEMBERS EXPECTATIONS & RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Years of Service: Be an active member of Women for Riley for three years. After three years, members have the option to remain active on yearly basis or become an Associate Member. Associate Members continue engagement with Riley Hospital, but not in an active capacity.
  • Annual Gift: Set an example for others by giving. Make an annual gift at the Riley Society level of at least $1,000. Women for Riley have a goal of 100% member giving.
  • Community Ambassador: Attend the new member orientation meeting and take a tour of Riley Hospital for Children to become knowledgeable about Riley Children’s Foundation, Riley Hospital for Children and Camp Riley. Become educated about the grants program supported by Women for Riley.  
  • Meetings: Attend a minimum of three out of our five general meetings.
  • Participate: Help sustain the organization by attending meetings, becoming an officer or chairing a committee, serving on a committee and volunteering for Women for Riley special projects. Members are also asked to vote to approve new grants at the October and February general meetings after reviewing all grants and the evaluation and recommendation of the Grants Committee.
  • Prom: The Riley Cancer Center Prom is Women for Riley’s signature project.  Members have the opportunity to help patients and their families in an intimate setting.  Each member is asked to serve on a Prom Committee.
  • Member Engagement: Women become involved because of their passion for Riley Hospital, but it is also a chance to meet and work with other women who share a common purpose. Plan to attend social functions to get to know other members and help the group develop an esprit de corps. Members can also become trained Riley volunteers and participate in arts and crafts activities each month at the hospital.
  • Foundation events: Participate in Riley Children’s Foundation events such as the Annual Luncheon and Riley Society Events.
  • Member recruitment: Help to identify and recommend potential Women for Riley members. Attend the annual new member coffee (February), sponsor prospective members and attend the spring luncheon in May to welcome new members.
