Sign the Pledge: Move Your Money if
Your Bank Won't Move Away from Fossil Fuels
The fossil fuel industry polluting our atmosphere can't exist without money from banks and investors. If we stop the Big Four Banks - Bank of America, Chase, Citibank, and Wells Fargo - from lending, we help shut down the industry. We don’t want our money and savings to be used to bankroll the climate crisis. Seventy percent of the country’s financial assets belong to Baby Boomers and the Silent Generation. Who can influence the banks? We can.
IF YOU ARE A CUSTOMER with an account or credit card at Bank of America, Chase, Citibank, and/or Wells Fargo, please read and sign the pledge form below: "If by the end of 2022, Chase, Citibank, Wells Fargo, and Bank of America are still funding climate-destroying fossil fuel projects, I pledge to close my account and cut up my credit card."
Sign your name, your contact details, and select the banks where you have checking, savings, or credit cards (perhaps even that airline frequent flyer or Amazon card), and the years you've had the account.
If you do not have an account or credit card at any of these Big 4 Banks, please sign the Pledge for non-account-holders HERE.
We are powerful when we act together. But, don’t move your money or cut up your credit card quite yet. The big banks won’t notice if you quietly move your money on your own. When the time is right, we will make good on our pledges together, en masse, and we will be providing you lots of information to make it easy for you to switch your accounts and stop banking with companies invested in climate chaos.

Note: Third Act will complete this petition with the details and personal comments you provide. Once we reach critical mass, we will deliver these pledges to the bank CEOs and bank branches. Help us get more signatures and stay tuned: Together we will turn up the heat on the banks in creative ways over time.
Banking on our Future Pledge
We the undersigned are account-holders at Chase, Citibank, Bank of America, or Wells Fargo, and we do not want our money to support lending for fossil fuel companies and projects responsible for the climate crisis. Therefore, if these four big banks continue to lend our money for fossil fuel exploration and development beyond December 31, 2022, we pledge collectively to move our accounts out of these four big banks into more environmentally and socially conscious banks and financial service providers, including checking, savings, and/or credit cards.
Our request, and our hope, is that Chase, Citibank, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo will reform their lending practices so that we will continue to be customers, but we are unwilling to have our resources used to fund climate destruction. Move your money, or we will move ours.
Together we are powerful!
Let's use the Power of 5: Help us get 5 more people to sign this pledge.
Please share this action with friends, family, neighbors, and others
who want to help stop banks from financing climate destruction.
Once we reach critical mass, we will deliver these pledges to the bank CEOs and bank branches and
turn up the heat on the banks in creative ways over time.
