How to Create Pledge Cards

Pamela Follett/Demand Media

Pledge cards are a way to solicit donations for your events or organization. Charities, churches and other nonprofit organizations distribute pledge cards that others can fill out and pledge an amount of money. Pledge cards are filled out by donors to show commitment and support for a particular organization, event or cause.

Step 1

Create a rough draft of the pledge card. Ask for the donor's name, address and phone number, and include several check boxes with a dollar amount from which those pledging can choose. Other pledge cards don't ask for names if they're requesting anonymous donations, and some mention on the card if they accept credit cards or cash only.

Step 2

Change the layout or size of the page so that it matches the standard size of 3 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches If 3 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches is not in the preset sizes, select "Custom" and input the paper size.

Insert the organization's logo. You also may insert an official letterhead that includes the organization's name, address and contact information, and place it at the top of the card.

Step 4

Format the pledge card as desired. Change the font to reflect the organization for which you are making a pledge card. For example, a church might use a professional-looking font such as Times New Roman or Arial, while organizations that want to convey a modern vibe might choose Tahoma or Helvetica.
