The Chicago Bears are looking to recognize and support a non-profit organization that matters most to our fans.

During the 2020 season, the Bears will recognize a Community All-Pro with a $101,000 grant.

A Community All-Pro is a non-profit organization that continues to make a positive impact on the Chicagoland area and the state of Illinois in a variety of ways from issues like social justice, health and wellness, environment, hunger, and beyond. Everyone knows an organization doing meaningful work.
