Founded in 1967, the National Football League Alumni Association is the most well-known and well-respected retired player organization.
As a non-profit organization, the NFL Alumni Chicago Chapter is comprised mainly of retired National Football League players, coaches, professionals, cheerleaders, spouses, and community residents. The focus of NFL Alumni is to serve, assist, and inform players in their post-NFL lives. The Association offers a variety of medical, financial, educational, and social programs to keep members and their families healthy, productive and connected.
However, the NFL Alumni has a strong tradition of “Caring for Kids” across the country. Player alumni give back in their local communities by raising funds for youth-related charities through their 40 regional chapters. It is a tradition that has existed for more than 50 years.
Memberships are open to community residents, fans, and sponsors as well as retired NFL Players and Cheerleader Alumnae.
