Since its inception in 1995, the foundation has raised more than $2.2 million for children’s charities in Manitoba through a number of sources, most notably the annual Winnipeg Goldeyes Field of Dreams Foundation Golf Tournament.  Other revenue generators include fan donations, the Fillmore Riley LLP Ks for Kids promotion, the TCBY Radar Pitching Booth, memorabilia auctions and the sale of 50/50 tickets at Shaw Park during home games.

All decisions on funding are made by the Board of Directors of the Winnipeg Goldeyes Field of Dreams Foundation, at its sole discretion. Successful applicants will be contacted in February 2019.
