About Us

Light the Hoan ("we," "our," or "us") is a committee of the Daniel W. Hoan Foundation, Inc., a Wisconsin nonstock corporation, recognized as a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code ("Code"). We are a group of local emerging leaders whose mission is to illuminate the Daniel Hoan Memorial Bridge (the "Hoan Bridge") which connects Interstate 794 in downtown Milwaukee to the Lake Freeway across the Milwaukee River Inlet.

Donations to Light the Hoan will be contributed to the Hoan Bridge Lighting Fund, a charitable fund at the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, Inc., a Wisconsin nonstock corporation, recognized as tax exempt under Code section 501(c)(3).  Donations will be used to support the design, construction and operation of aesthetic lighting on the Hoan Bridge through a public-private partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation ("WisDOT"). Light the Hoan intends for distributions from the Hoan Bridge Lighting Fund to be granted to WisDOT. WisDOT is not responsible for the contents of this website or any statements made herein.

Information for Donors

Gifts for the purpose of lighting the Hoan Bridge will be processed by Pay Pal, Inc. and managed by the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, the administrator of the Hoan Bridge Lighting Fund. The Fund is a charitable fund and donations to it are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

A donation to Light the Hoan is made and received to fund the design, construction and operation of lighting on the Hoan Bridge. A donor will not receive from Light the Hoan, the Daniel W. Hoan Foundation or the Greater Milwaukee Foundation any goods or services, including ownership of a particular light bulb, in exchange for a donation. Light the Hoan and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation ("WisDOT") will not assign a light bulb to a specific donor or to a person to whom a bulb is dedicated or otherwise identify a bulb as belonging to a specific donor or a person to whom a bulb is dedicated. A donor does not have the right to request from Light the Hoan or WisDOT a specific brand, color or any other type of light bulb in exchange for making a donation.

Your donation will remain in the Hoan Bridge Lighting Fund at the Greater Milwaukee Foundation until sufficient funds are received to proceed with the project of lighting the Hoan Bridge. If for some reason this project does not proceed, by making a donation you agree to allow the Greater Milwaukee Foundation to use the donation to support urban lighting, placemaking, or other projects for the benefit of the people of the city of Milwaukee.

Light the Hoan, on behalf of the Daniel Hoan Foundation, and the Greater Milwaukee Foundation together are solely responsible for collecting and managing donations and for making any grants to WisDOT for purposes of lighting the Hoan Bridge. WisDOT is not responsible for the fundraising or grant-making activities of Light the Hoan, on behalf of the Daniel Hoan Foundation, and the Greater Milwaukee Foundation.
