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.
In Newcastle, individuals or organisations can sign a resolution of support, which is followed up by suggestions of actions depending on the type of organisation.
In Leeds, supporters who have signed a pledge are invited to a monthly meeting to learn about volunteer opportunities in the city.
