Riley Children’s Foundation is the fundraising arm of Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health and the founding organization that opened Riley Hospital in 1924. Today Riley Hospital is recognized as one of the best children’s hospitals in the nation. Riley Children’s Foundation also supports Camp Riley and the James Whitcomb Riley Museum Home.
When you give, children heal
Every gift makes an impact. The dedicated team at Riley Hospital could not deliver expert family-centered care and breakthrough pediatric research without extensive donor support. Gifts from partners like you help sustain critical Riley Hospital programs such as:
- Pediatric Research and Patient Care
- Maternity and Newborn Health
- Family Support Programs (including Child Life and Social Work)
Everyone has the power to make a difference for Riley Hospital, from school children to corporate partners to Riley families and friends.
Because of you, hope happens here.
To ensure children have access to exceptional healthcare by funding pediatric research, education and care.
We raise funds statewide and steward Foundation assets for the kids.
Our Riley Community
A team of passionate professionals committed to delivering exceptional fundraising results through relationships built on trust, constant innovation, and compassion for others.
