Bears part of new Chicago Sports Alliance


For the first time, five of Chicago’s professional sports teams are joining together to work on a vital social issue, lending their broad reach and resources in support of solutions to decrease violence in the city.

The Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, Cubs and White Sox, operating collectively as the Chicago Sports Alliance, announced they will be donating a total of $1 million in one-time grants to support three programs addressing this critical issue. The teams will look to continue the Chicago Sports Alliance effort on an annual basis, and decisions regarding programs that will receive future funding will be made as the effort progresses.

All five teams will continue their individual charitable and community relations efforts, which donate millions in financial and in-kind support annually to hundreds of organizations and programs and have significant impact on communities across the Chicagoland area.
