Our banks are hiding a dirty, little secret: they’re in bed with the fossil fuel industry. But you can change this. First, pledge to your bank that unless they break up with fossil fuel expansion, you will break up with them. And then use our resources to do just that: move your money to make a change.

Film developed in partnership with Make My Money Matter, a UK campaign aiming to ensure the money in our banks and pensions builds a better world. Learn more here.

 

In the past two years, the Big 4 Wall Street banks—Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Citibank, and Wells Fargo—have provided $349 billion to fossil fuel companies, fueling the climate crisis. 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. If we stop these four Big Banks from investing, we help shut down the industry. Together with the youth fighting for their future, we can influence the banks to change. 

We are asking customers and non-customers alike to sign the Banking on our Future Pledge and provide a personal comment. We started delivering these pledges to bank CEOs in March 2023 and will continue delivering them in waves through 2024.

After you sign the pledge, we’ve got lots of resources to help you make good on your pledge and switch to better banks and credit cards. And don’t forget to tell your bank or credit card company why you’re leaving. 

Your bank is being unfaithful. This Valentine’s Day it’s your turn to boss up and say enough is enough. 

It’s time to break up with your bank.

Love,
Third Act

 

About the video:

We are thrilled to partner with Make My Money Matter, a UK campaign founded by filmmaker and activist Richard Curtis (“Love Actually”) aiming to ensure the money in our banks and pensions builds a better world. They originally developed this video to focus on the top 5 UK High Street banks––Barclays, HSBC, Santander, NatWest and Lloyds––and the $37 billion they provided in one year to fossil fuel companies. Make My Money Matter generously partnered with Third Act to adapt the video, featuring the Game of Thrones actors and real-life couple Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie, for a US audience and the US banks that have provided $349 billion in two years to fossil fuel companies. Visit Make My Money Matter to learn more about what they are doing to persuade banks and pensions in the UK to stop funding fossil fuel expansion.
