The Chicago Bears have a longstanding tradition of supporting numerous charities and assisting those in need. Bears Care was established as a fund of the R.R. McCormick Tribune Foundation in 1995, a partnership that continued until 2005 when Bears Care incorporated as a 501 c 3 organization. Throughout this time, Bears Care has been committed to improving the quality of life for people in the Chicagoland community, especially underserved children and their families, through targeted programs supporting education, youth athletics and medical research and health awareness programs focusing on breast and ovarian cancer. Bears Care has provided over $22.8 million in grants to over 200 qualifying agencies since 2005.
