Improving lives of children in southeastern Wisconsin

Located in the heart of Milwaukee (and in the heart of the Menomonee Valley), giving has always been at the center of who we are as Heart of Canal Street.

Since it began in 1994, more than $19 million has been gifted to hundreds of local children’s charities. Every year, funds are generated through special Canal Street bingo games and other promotions.

Each year's program spotlights a Charity of Choice partner who receives the first $100,000 in Heart of Canal Street funding to impact change on a pressing community issue. Thirty additional charities will divide the remaining funds equally.

Application Process

The 2019 Heart of Canal Street application period will open in May. Check back soon to enter this year's program!
