The Riley Children’s Foundation announced its $175 million campaign to help fund new pediatric research, patient care, newborn health and support for new mothers.

Though the campaign has been running for a couple of years, the foundation officially announced its campaign in hopes to breathing new momentum as it approaches its goal. Already the organization has raised over $121 million through more than 300,000 donors, according to IBJ.

The funds will also be used to increase staff who specialize in diagnosing and helping women with high-risk pregnancies.
