Sign the Pledge:
Stop Big Banks Funding Climate Destruction
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 - even if you aren't currently a customer or a credit card holder at one of these banks!
If you do not have an account or credit card at any of these Big 4 Banks, please read and add your name to the pledge below: "If by the end of 2022, Chase, Citibank, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo are still funding climate-destroying fossil fuel projects, I pledge I won't bank at these institutions now or in the future."
If you are a customer with an account or credit card at Bank of America, Chase, Citibank, and/or Wells Fargo, please sign our other pledge for 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 individuals do not want our money to support lending for fossil fuel companies and projects responsible for the climate crisis. Therefore, we pledge to never do business with Bank of America, Chase, Citibank, or Wells Fargo banks if you continue to lend money for polluting fossil fuel exploration and development beyond December 31, 2022. We pledge collectively to do business with more environmentally and socially conscious banks and financial service providers, including checking, savings, credit cards, and brokerage accounts, until you reform your investment policies.
Together, we represent enormous potential business with your banks. Our request, and our hope, is that Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and Citibank will reform their lending practices and that we may become your customers. Until then, we are unwilling to have our resources fund climate destruction.
Together we are powerful!
Let's use the Power of 5: Help us get 5 more people to sign the pledge.

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.
