What is a pledge?

A pledge is a commitment to take action. Many CoS groups ask for pledges from individual supporters or local businesses. These take different forms (there are some examples in our Tools and Templates section).

How can a pledge be turned into action?

Once groups collect pledges, they need a way of keeping in touch with everyone who has pledged and to support them in turning that pledge into action. This could be through a newsletter, contact with individuals or through events.
