The Green Bay Packers Foundation, which is largely funded by the NFL team the Green Bay Packers, has been caught funding Planned Parenthood in Wisconsin. Meanwhile, the Chicago Bears charitable outreach program, Bears Care, has invested money in outreach to people with special needs as well as housing for homeless veterans. The Chicago Bears are owned by the McCaskey family; the McCaskeys are proudly pro-life, and Pat McCaskey, a co-owner and executive with the team, regularly speaks at the Chicago National Pro-Life March and other pro-life events in the state.
Meanwhile the @ChicagoBears owners are pro-life Catholics who regularly attend the Chicago National Pro-Life March.

Faithwire reports, “Earlier this month, the Green Bay Packers Foundation released the names of its annual grant fund recipients, and Planned Parenthood — the nation’s largest abortion provider — was on the list.
The GBPF gave away a record $2.05 million this year, most of which went to non-controversial charities. However, they did donate an undisclosed amount to Planned Parenthood Of Wisconsin, Inc., in Milwaukee.”
Contrast this with Bears Care, the equivalent organization of the Chicago Bears. Some of their recipients include:
- Easter Seals, which provides support services for children and adults living with disabilities.
- GiGi’s Playhouse, which, “changes lives and provides hope through consistent delivery of free educational, therapeutic, and career development programs for individuals with Down syndrome, their families, and the community, through a replicable playhouse model.”
- Midwest Shelter For Homeless Veterans, which works to house veterans in “northeast Illinois and our neighboring communities.”
