Naming Opportunities

Your gift to support next-generation projects will enhance care for years to come and ensure that your legacy of compassion lives on.

What does it mean to give to….

  • People? It means that patients are cared for by clinicians who are top in their field and a care team who goes the distance.
  • Progress? It means you and your loved ones benefit from the latest medical advances.
  • Partnerships? It means we’re stronger when we work together. When you give to partnerships, you enable care that expands beyond hospital walls and into the community spurring collaboration and innovation.

Priority Opportunities

IU Health Academic Health Center (Downtown Indianapolis)

To learn more about the role philanthropy can play in this project, contact email Heather Perdue, executive director, Philanthropy or call 317.688.5678.

Riley Maternity & Newborn Health

Indiana ranks among the 10 states with the highest infant mortality rates—in fact, 600 babies in Indiana die before reaching their first birthday. This is not acceptable. Our priority is to address this issue and improve outcomes for moms and babies.

Riley Children’s Health is expanding services to include comprehensive obstetric care for pregnant women while continuing its commitment to provide exceptional care for babies and children.

Funding supports recruitment of maternal-fetal medicine specialists, the new fetal center for expectant mothers whose babies have known birth defects, statewide training, and research to investigate the most effective ways to prevent prematurity and infant deaths.

To learn more about funding needs for Riley Maternity and Newborn Health, contact Cara Lathrop, Riley Children’s Foundation vice president of development at 317.634.4474.
