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 chicagobears.com/communityallpros 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.
