Each season, the Chicago Bulls distributes financial grants through Chicago Bulls Charities to nonprofit organizations that support underserved Chicagoans and share the team’s commitment to community violence prevention through our four focus areas: education, community investment, health and wellness, and youth opportunity. Grants are made through Chicago Bulls Charities and the Chicago Bulls Community Assist Fund, a Robert R. McCormick Foundation Fund. During the 2020-21 season, we supported Chicago communities through financial donations from our annual grants; a special COVID-19 relief fund, and fundraising support.
In addition to our annual grant-giving, the Bulls have continued their commitment to address communities disproportionately affected by COVID-19 and social injustice in Chicago. Chicago Bulls Charities prides themselves on enhancing community initiatives across the Chicagoland area with in-kind donations to uplift community events. Whether it is providing sporting equipment to youth program in need, a DJ for a school event, or a player appearance to celebrate the achievements of our community leaders; Chicago Bulls Charities is here to strengthen the great work happening throughout the city
Chicago Bulls Charities is committed to using the Bulls' platform to elevate organizations, big and small, that are addressing critical issues in our city. The ability to do this work would not be possible without the generous contributions from our corporate partners, individuals, and fundraising programs that fund the team’s annual grant program. Our engagement in this work is always enhanced by our passionate players eager to join us in our efforts to create a better Chicago for all.
