To illuminate the Hoan Bridge in celebration of our city, its people, its social and cultural institutions, and its progress, with a symbol of unity and civic pride.
The Daniel Hoan Memorial Bridge is one of Milwaukee's most iconic landmarks. Yet, we see it as a missed opportunity for beautification in our city's landscape.
Lighting projects from around the world have shown direct economic and citizen engagement benefits, and we believe Cream City could benefit from the same.
While lighting the bridge does not solve big issues such as poverty or segregation, it does offer a platform for building awareness of these issues and improving community pride.
By dedicating a bulb, our supporters help us "shine a light" on the amazing individuals and the good work being done right here in Milwaukee.
We believe every Milwaukee citizen should have the opportunity to play a part in Light the Hoan's mission.
Help us shine a light on the positive stories about Milwaukee with dedications starting at just $25.
There's no question that Milwaukee's transformation is steered in part by its amazing business community.
Highlight the work of your employees and show your #MKEPRIDE with a corporate sponsorship.
Every day, positive stories that illustrate love, home and resilience go untold. We share a few here.

OCTOBER LIGHTING PREMIERE TO INCLUDE COMMUNITY CELEBRATION
Light the Hoan is thrilled to announce that, after a two-year campaign, the west side of the bridge will be lit before the end of the summer. Following installation, a community celebration will be held to kick off the milestone, and the bridge will then be lit daily.
Light the Hoan has raised another $500,000, propelling the collective closer to its ultimate fundraising goal, and ensuring it can move forward with lighting purchases.
This month, Light the Hoan joined forces with several local programs and organizations with shared focus on STEM education to inspire the next generation of coders.
Nearly one year after Light the Hoan gave Milwaukeeans a sneak peek at what the Hoan Bridge could look like in lights, the group has announced a $1.2 million grant from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation on behalf of an anonymous donor.
Though its been some time since our last update, big things have been happening behind-the-scenes over here at Light the Hoan.
Milwaukee residents are about to get a glimpse of what the Daniel Hoan Memorial Bridge will look like in all of its illuminated glory. This week, Light the Hoan will move forward with a collaboration with Signify, the world leader in lighting, to temporarily install connected LED lighting on the bridge.

Just over a month after our amazing kick-off event, Light the Hoan is revving up our engines to take us all the way through summer — with some help from House of Harley.
Summer is in full swing in Milwaukee and when we’re not soaking up the sun, or attending one of our favorite festivals, we're busy shining a light on our project. So, we’re especially excited this month to announce that we’ve received a $50,000 grant from the We Energies Foundation that is sure to energize fundraising throughout the season.
