48 of you have already returned a form renewing and in some cases increasing your pledge. Thank you! 38 current pledgers have not (yet) returned a form. We know (and assume) that in most cases you still intend to pledge as before, often by standing order. But getting a form back helps us plan for sure, and we are also still a little short of our target for 2021: by just €500 of the total we are hoping for. Here are the letter, fact sheet and commitment form from our 2021 campaign, or you can just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org giving us the amount (and frequency i.e. weekly, monthly, annually) of your pledge.
