The Chicago Bears announced today they will donate $100,000 each to 10 charities nominated by fans in honor of their 100th season, totaling $1 million in donations. Charities located within the Bears’ market will be eligible. Applications can be submitted online at today through May 31. All 10 charities will be nominated by fans across Illinois and the defined Bears home market.

Nine charities will be selected by a Bears’ internal committee and announced mid-July. The 10th charity will be narrowed down to three choices by the internal committee before it is opened to fan voting in October; the final charity will be announced the week before the last 2019 regular-season home game.

Each charity will be honored at a Bears 2019 home game. Fans are encouraged to share this information with charities they are invested in.
