Riverview Health Foundation creates meaningful charitable opportunities in support of Riverview Health to advance the community’s health and quality of life now and in the future. Our donors are partners in saving and changing lives in our community through their charitable giving.
New technology offers a longer and better quality of life, but carries a high price tag. With Medicare and insurance companies tightening reimbursement policies, philanthropy is more important than ever. Riverview Health Foundation provides funding for new health services, programs and equipment needed by our community. Since the Foundation’s beginning in 1976, more than $15 million has been raised and given to support new equipment and programs serving our patients and their families. One of our recent projects included the Courtney Cox Cole Infusion Center in Noblesville.

Riverview Health is the county hospital for Hamilton County, but doesn’t receive an allocation from the county to support its annual operations. Revenue comes from insurance, Medicare, Medicaid and patient payments. During the past five years, Riverview Health has provided an average of $18 million a year in uncompensated care to residents of Hamilton County.
You can help save and change lives at Riverview Health by making a charitable donation. No matter the size, your gift can be directed toward a medical area that is near and dear to your heart—whether it's cancer, cardiology, maternity or the area of greatest need.
The Grateful Patient Program at Riverview Health provides a meaningful way for patients and their families to thank a Riverview Health staff member who played a special role in their care.
Maybe it was a smile or kind words that brought you or a loved one comfort. Perhaps it was a life-saving procedure or treatment completed without a hitch. Or maybe it was the gentle hug from a nurse that made your child feel safe and secure. A contribution—large or small—celebrates the person who cared for you while also ensuring that future patients of Riverview Health continue to receive the highest level of care you experienced in your journey.
Each gift will be acknowledged to the Riverview Health staff member—without any financial disclosure—to let him or her know of your appreciation. If there is someone who truly made a difference in the care you received at Riverview Health, please consider making a gift in honor of that person while letting him or her know how much it meant to you.
Dr. Malcolm and Mary Bray Scholarship
As a community partner, Riverview Health Foundation is pleased to provide grant and scholarship opportunities for local high school students through the Riverview Health Foundation Dr. and Mrs. Malcolm Bray Medical Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior from each of the public high schools in Hamilton County wishing to pursue a career in the medical field. Each recipient is awarded a one-time $1,000 scholarship. The Dr. and Mrs. Malcolm Bray Medical Scholarship was established in 1993 through the Riverview Health Foundation and has awarded over 180 scholarships to students since its inception. Dr. and Mrs. Bray’s philosophy was to always share the blessings they had received in life by giving back to the community. Dr. Bray had a saying: “Learn, Earn, and Return."
Hamilton County Medical Society Scholarship
In addition to the Dr. and Mrs. Malcolm Bray Scholarship, Riverview Health Foundation is pleased to offer an additional $500 scholarship awarded to the same student selected to receive the Bray Scholarship. This scholarship is made possible through a gift from the Hamilton County Medical Society.
The Hamilton County Medical Society was formed in the 1980s by physicians practicing within Hamilton County as a professional development and social group to occasionally meet and share experiences and best practices. As the years went by, the group slowly moved toward working with the Indiana State Medical Society, and the need for a local chapter declined. As a result, the remaining funds from the Hamilton County Medical Society have been given to Riverview Health Foundation to distribute as a scholarship award to students throughout Hamilton County who are interested in pursuing a degree in the medical field.
