We’re Fighting for Kids

It’s our job to fight for kids. It’s our job to ensure they have the best possible future.

We believe investing in children’s health is the best way to do that.

When You Give, Kids Win

Your gift allows every child access to best-in-class pediatric health care today and funds the development of new treatments for tomorrow.

That means more kids overcome cancer.

More kids born with heart defects grow up to be strong.
More kids head back to the playground after an accident.
More kids suffering from depression get the help they need.

Your gift means more kids thrive.

To inspire people to invest in pediatric research, care, and programs that support the physical and mental health of kids.

To ensure all children have equitable access to exceptional healthcare so they may reach their optimal health and quality of life.

We aspire to model inclusion and treat everyone with dignity and respect.

We strive to grow through thoughtful risk-taking that leads to innovation.

We trust one another to act in the best interests of Riley Children's Foundation, our donors, and the children and families we serve.

The James Whitcomb Riley Museum Home & Visitor Center

In addition to our ongoing support of Riley Children’s Health and Riley-affiliated research, Riley Children’s Foundation continues to perpetuate the legacy of our namesake, the late Hoosier poet James Whitcomb Riley, through our ownership of the James Whitcomb Riley Museum Home & Visitors Center. Built in 1872, Mr. Riley moved into the home in the Lockerbie neighborhood of downtown Indianapolis during the peak of his career and remained there until his death.
