IUF Crowdfunding


Rock for Riley is a student-run organization at Indiana University School of Medicine dedicated to serving Riley Hospital for Children patients and their families. Since our formation in 2004, we have hosted many large events including concerts, drive-in movie nights, and 5K walk/runs that have collectively raised over $750,000 for Riley. We are currently seeking funds for our budgetary account to continue to host large events in support of Riley this year and for years to come and are sincerely grateful for your support!

More Info

Rock for Riley was established by a group of Indiana University Medical School students in 2004 as an organization benefiting Riley Hospital for Children. In its first several years, the organization hosted large concert events with artists including Kings of Leon, The Avett Brothers, Wilco, and My Morning Jacket and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Riley. Rock for Riley has hosted many types of events since then, including 5Ks and movie nights. While the organization faced a few years of difficulty hosting events, last year Rock for Riley raised over $15,000 (on a budget of less than $2,000) and engaged over 750 community members.

This year, the Executive Team is passionate about bringing Rock for Riley back to its roots and original glory by hosting a concert. This effort will be neither easy nor inexpensive, but we believe in the potential of this event to fundraise for Riley and engage community partners. As such, we are launching a fundraising campaign to provide Rock for Riley with the needed funds to plan large events for years to come. This is where we need your help!

We would be so appreciative if you would consider making a gift to Rock for Riley’s IUF budgetary account so that we can host exciting large-scale future fundraising events and ensure that 100% of donations made at these events can continue to be given to Riley. Your gift will impact Rock for Riley this year and for years to come.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us on our Facebook page with any questions or if you would like to donate by check rather than online through this page. We would love to hear from you on what you look forward to for Rock for Riley’s future events, and to keep you updated on our current progress.

Thank you for your time and support of Riley Hospital for Children.
