Potential Societal Impact: ROI Per Child

Economic Impact

  • The average earnings over 40 years is $2.4M for a person with a bachelor’s degree—more than twice the average for someone with a high school diploma, according to the U.S. Census Bureau
  • In contrast, the average lifetime societal burden is $2.1M for each high school dropout who enters a life of crime and drugs
  • For every child, this represents an ROI of $4.5M to $107,100 invested over 17 year period
  • The compounding effect of generations to come yields even higher returns

Bears Outreach

Grit. Resilience. Honor. Champions. These are a few descriptors that come to mind when you think of the Chicago Bears. The Bears are a legendary football team with more victories and Hall of Famers than any other team in professional football.

In addition to the accomplishments on the field, the Bears, through Bears Care have never forgotten about the welfare of Chicago’s children. Sure, there are the invitations to training camp events and the preseason games. The kids love those! But just like a great football team, the Bears are not afraid to go deep.

For example, Bears players have initiated Peace Circles meetings between our youth and the Chicago police. These conversations help to foster understanding between the two groups. Also, Talking Circles between our kids and a Bears player enable the two groups to talk about important topics that are on their minds.

The Bears provided invaluable assistance with the building and opening of Austin Harvest, our pop up fresh food market in the Austin community. And this fall we are planning two more Talking Circle events and a Career Exploration Day to expose our children to career opportunities in the sports industry.

The Chicago Bears and Bears Care are helping our kids develop the same kind of grit and resilience that builds winners and champions in school and in life.

By The Hand Club For Kids is so grateful to the Chicago Bears and Bears Care, the team’s charitable arm, for their continued generous support of our children. Bear Down!!
