Your Gifts Change Lives
Thanks to the generosity of donors like you, Riley Children’s Foundation annually grants more than $35 million to Riley Children’s Health, Riley-affiliated researchers at the Indiana University School of Medicine, and Camp Riley.
Here’s how recent gifts are making a difference in the lives of Riley families and advancing pediatric care for kids everywhere.
By The Numbers
Dollars granted annually
Child Life interactions funded
Kids’ Mental Health Services
Donor support funds licensed mental health professionals and other staff who provide around-the-clock care in the Riley Children’s Health Emergency Department and the Simon Skjodt Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health Unit.
Nationally Recognized Cancer Care
The Stem Cell Transplant and Cellular Therapy Program at Riley is the only program in Indiana offering life-saving stem cell transplants and other breakthrough therapies to children with aggressive cancer. Donor funds support team members who care for these highly complex, high-risk patients.
Pediatric Drug Development
Severe asthma is a leading cause of hospitalization in children and accounts for the majority of asthma-related deaths. Donations to Riley Children's Foundation support researchers like Dr. Benjamin Gaston, who developed a drug for severe asthma that is now being tested in a national clinical study.
Life-Changing Heart Research
Fueled by donor dollars, a team led by a Riley cardiologist is working to extend the lives of patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy by studying how to delay and prevent heart failure associated with the disease.
Each summer, more than 300 campers with physical and cognitive diagnoses make their “home away from home” at one of several Camp Riley sessions, enjoying facilities and activities that are designed to be barrier-free. Donations allow Riley Children’s Foundation to underwrite the cost of camp.
