Giving Tuesday Bay Polar Plunge Thank You!

Thank you for making 2017 CBF's best #GivingTuesday ever!

Not only did you and nearly 900 of your fellow CBF donors meet our #GivingTuesday $25,000 challenge—you far exceeded it, making this CBF's best #GivingTuesday ever!

Since saying "thank you" didn't seem like enough, CBFers in Annapolis, Richmond, and Virginia Beach took the Polar Plunge yesterday! We jumped into the Bay—which was a balmy 50 degrees—to celebrate you and your fellow supporters. Many thanks for all you do for our rivers, streams, and Bay.

In case you missed them, check out our live videos on Facebook of the three different Polar Plunges in Annapolis, Richmond, and Virginia Beach. And find out what more you can do to help save the Bay!

The Bay Needs You

The State of the Bay Report makes it clear that the Bay needs our support now more than ever. Your donation helps the Chesapeake Bay Foundation maintain our momentum toward a restored Bay, rivers, and streams for today and generations to come.
