The Goodyear Lake Polar Bear Jump is a non-profit organization that annually raises money for local children, adults, and other local organizations. We complete this task by the many individuals that volunteer to jump into Goodyear Lake in Mid-February. In the month and a half prior to the jump, these individiuals receive monetary donations from the surrounding area. We also engage in other fundraising endeavors in this time with the help of countless volunteers to afford the items needed to run the jump. The total amount raised within that year is divided among all of our recipients. We donate 100% of the funds raised to these recipients.

How to get involved:
