PLUNGING IS MORE FUN WITH FRIENDS

Planning to plunge with friends? At our annual Polar Bear Plunge, we have two types of teams that are most often formed. The majority of teams are Plungers and their friends, Fun Teams. However if you're affiliated with a 501(C)(3) nonprofit, you can consider the option of creating a Fundsharing Team.

CREATE A TEAM

Fun Team: Make the Polar Bear Plunge THE event of February for your family and friends. Come together, create a fun name, fundraise together, come up with a fund costume idea, and plunge together to make it a memorable experience for everyone. Just make sure your team leader registers first and creates the team during the sign-up process before other team members attempt to sign up.

Nonprofit Fundsharing Team: CCAN makes this option available to nonprofit allies who would like to Plunge to raise funds for their own programs, in addition to CCAN. CCAN and the team will split the funds raised 50-50. To participate as a Fundsharing team we ask the team to raise a minimum of $1,000, but that’s not hard and we encourage you to set your sights high, especially since you can have unlimited team members. The partner nonprofit handles recruiting for their team and selecting a captain to coordinate with us; we’ll handle all the plunger support materials, event promotion, planning, and day-of logistics.

If you're interested in forming a non-profit or faith based team for fundsharing opportunities, please email Jess Rampulla at [email protected]

JOIN AN ALREADY FORMED TEAM

Upon registering for the plunge you'll be given the opportunity to join a team. Follow the instructions to join a team and search for the team you would like to join. If you already signed up and forgot to join your team, email [email protected] with the subject line "Plunge Team Request" and include your name and the name of the team you'd like to join.
