FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The Plunge Team is here for you if you have any questions about the 2022 Polar Bear Plunge to Keep Winter Cold. Please feel free to contact us at [email protected]. 

WHAT IS THE POLAR BEAR PLUNGE?
The Polar Bear Plunge is CCAN's annual crowdfunding event and biggest fundraiser of the year. The funds raised power our campaigns to move our region off of planet-heating fossil fuels and toward clean energy. At the plunge, activists show their commitment to combating climate change by freezing in icy cold water, and as with charity walks, runs or rides, plungers recruit sponsors to support them.

Due to the unpredictability of COVID-19, this year's plunge will be hybrid. Find more details on our About the Plunge page.

WHAT IF I CAN'T JOIN ON FEBRUARY 12TH?
That's okay! Take your Plunge before the 12th and share your photos and videos with us. We'll have a virtual program for all Plungers during the early evening on the 12th.

ARE DONATIONS TO THE PLUNGE TAX-DEDUCTIBLE?
Yes! CCAN is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and donations to support your plunge are tax-deductible to the fullest extent permitted by the IRS.

HOW DO I DONATE VIA CHECK?
If you would prefer to donate via check. Please send it to: 

Chesapeake Climate Action Network
P.O. Box 11138
Takoma Park, MD 20913

Please make the check out to CCAN and write the name of the plunger you are supporting on the memo line. For example, [Friend's name PBP].

WHAT PERKS DO I GET FOR FUNDRAISING?
More important than any perk, our plungers know that their efforts help to fund critical efforts to stop fossil fuel development and promote clean energy policies. All Plungers are invited to attend our virtual Post-Plunge celebration. If you raise at least $350 you'll receive our 2022 Plunge t-shirt. More Plunge Perks will be determined as the event approaches and we'll keep you updated on them in your Weekly Plunge Tips.
