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. 

Contact us on [email protected] if you want help to create a form on your website for organisations to pledge support and then be automatically listed on your supporters page.
